A Ten-Legged Running Machine

Some months ago -- almost a year ago, amazingly! -- I wrote about two new running partners: Gus and Jasper. They continue to share the trail with me more frequently than any other runners, human or otherwise. Together we are a ten-legged running machine; their irrepressible energy gets me out the door when I might be tempted to stay in bed.

Adopting them is one of the best things I've ever done, and if you're a runner looking for a devoted trail buddy, your best friend is out there somewhere, waiting for you -- visit a shelter near you!

We took a mellow run up the Stout Trail this morning and I got some great photos of the happy boys enjoying our favorite activity. See you on the trail!
