Dog Runs Half Marathon

Post  Nick Morris on Thu Oct 10, 2013 7:54 am

Huh, I wonder if they will start creating running races for dogs now Smile  Just imagine how the 1,128 people who were beat by a dog felt.  Does that mean they got K-9ed? Or dogged?

There's a 5k for dogs with their owner in Chicago.  Winning time this year was in the high 16's, and my buddy has already asked me to run with his dog next year to go for the win.  We're negotiating my asking price.

I can handle getting beat in a race by a dog.  I never really expected to ever be able to outrun a dog.  Now, if they could do / were doing these types of races for animals like....turtles, rhinos, elephants.....then yes, I would be feeling pretty lousy about my own abilities Smile

The Pittsburgh marathon offers, in addition to the marathon, half marathon, relay, 5K, kids marathon, a pet walk.  It costs $20 and the website says only well-behaved pets are welcome.  Interesting

How sad. I write for Babble Pets and had covered this story. Now I'll have to go add the unfortunate update. Sad
