Yesterday was my big race with Momma. She goes and does lots of races without me, but this time I got to go!! I was soooo excited. I started training so I'd be super strong and fast.
Soon it was race day, and Momma and I were ready to go! The theme of the race was "Peace Love & Run," so we had our tie-dye on.
My furiend, LBR foster Linus, brought his momma to the race too. I heard Momma tell Linus's Momma that we'd probably walk with them for most of the race. What?! No way, I trained too hard for this!!
As soon as they said "ready set go!", I was out of there! I went charging along, and Momma was working hard to keep up with me. I did grreat. Momma kept saying how proud she was of me. We did have to stop a few times to walk, but we ran like 87 miles of it!
We ended up finishing the 5k (3.1 miles) in 39:09. We were fifth place out of ALL the doggies there!! We would've been in third, but we stopped for water breaks. The dogs in front of me weren't short-nosed pups, and Momma was keeping an extra-close eye on me.
We hung out and chatted with folks at the finish line, and Momma shared her banana with me. Yay! I thought that was the best part of races, but Momma said there was something even better. And OMD, she was RIGHT!!
Post-race cheeseburgers!! Yeah, baby, running is TOTALLY my thing.
