An Unplanned Run

I didn’t plan on running yesterday, but my evening meeting got cancelled and I was left home with a free evening!

Kylie and Emma were just hanging out, looking rather bored.

So I decided it would be a great time to take them on their first run in a while!  I didn’t have to go a certain distance or speed, so it would be perfect!  I could run slow, short, and walk if they needed to.  I started getting ready and they knew something was up.

What are you doing???  I know you are up to something!

Then the excitement began!  I took Emma for 2 miles and she did great as always – she is the best runner.  Then I came home and switched Emma for Kylie and took Kylie out for another two.  She isn’t as good of a runner, but she still did very good.  They were both tired around 1.5 miles but they hung on and finished up their first run in a while!

After the run we went in the backyard for a self-timer photo shoot… which is much easier said than done.

    Lucky pups.
    I run with my GSD, Shane all the time. He’s in awesome shape but does lag behind a bit…that is BEFORE we head for home. Last weekend, he ran a really good 11 miles. What a dog! They’re the best.

    LOVE the self-timer pics… what cute lil babes! I’m happy they were able to hang on for so long… that’s a long way for a person to go on their first run back. Now imagine having 4 legs and doing that!! Super pups!

    Awh! I wish I had a big dog to run with :/
    Are Kylie and Emma named after anyone? I always think Kylie Minogue and Emma Bunton when I read their names lol!

    Running with my dog is almost alway s a nightmore, but maybe if I kept up a 9-min pace, she would be more focused. That’s “slow” for you?! You rock, lady!

    Love doggy runs! :) My dog is just coming back from a torn knee ligament. So, we are slowly up to 1/2 mile runs. It was great while I trained for Eugene because I never felt guilty. But it feels oh so good to have my loyal running companion with me. I swear she smiles while we run!

    SOOOOO cute! I love all of the puppy posts lately :) Your posts about your dogs really make me want to get my own dog! Someday (hopefully soon) I will, but I promised my mother I would wait until I owned my own place…renting with a pet is hard! Keep up with the pet posts so I can live vicariously through your wonderful family :)

    I love these pics! I have to do the switch mid-run too. It’s always so hard to leave one of them behind though. I’m pretty sure they whine the whole time I’m gone with the other one!
