Benefits of Exercising with Your Dog
My fastest 5k time is 27:30. My slowest 5k time is 50:45. That was just a few weeks ago. I wasn’t injured. I was “jogging” with my dog.
You may be thinking, “Why would your dog slow you down that much? Is she old?” Nope – Maddie is only three years old. But she’s not a golden retriever, black lab or a Border Collie. Maddie is a Shih Tzu. That’s right, even little lap dogs are great exercise buddies. Every time I see a race that’s dog friendly, I rush to sign us up.
