1) Never run in a straight line or the same direction for more than 5 seconds.

2) Poop in the woods, and stand around and wait for someone to clean it up for you.

3) When you see another runner, run up to them and smell them

4) Eat random things you find along your run

5)When you get home, tear around the house in your muddy shoes.

you know you are well hydrated by peeing on every tree you pass.

Aim to be the lead dog (re: dogsledding) because unless you are the lead dog, the view is always the same!

Sara Montgomery said...

I am dog, see me run.
What pace, what route? Who cares, no fun!

Start off fast, then lope to trot
Stop and sniff all stinky rot.

Have a roll, it's worth the bath
They give you in the aftermath.

Fur and tongue fly all around,
So glad I'm out of that damn pound.

Please take me with you every day,
We'll both be happy with our play.

I am beginning to believe that you were all dogs in a past life.

From the mind of my lab:
Where are you,
there you are,
where are you,
hey who's that dog,
where are you,
watch out mountain biker,
hey we didnt bring Jack,
where are you,
there you are,
we're done already :(

I so get that. I use to run with my friend and her dog and he was always going off and chasing something and coming back to check on us then he was off again. I feel bad because I still go over to visit my friend but she doesn't run anymore so he just sits there waiting for us to take him for a run.

Have the runner behind you start a game of "fetch" with you using gels and shot blocks.

Instead of your normal route, run a 20 mile loop chasing the mailman around the neighborhood. (Just make sure he doesn't have any doggy pepper spray first).

EJ said...

Playing fetch sounds like fun, I would definitly do that even just with a ball.

That poor mailman:)
