Good ole groupon…or maybe living social got me again. I saw the Petco 5k9 run listed on one of the two sites and debated purchasing the registration. Why you may ask? Well I have a small 8 pound, 7 year old shih tzu whom I have never ran with ever. Yes, I could have done the run alone but who wants to do that when you can have your doggie with you?! After much thought I decided to sign up anyways and if all else fails I would carry her the whole way and for $17 I couldn’t go wrong.
The day of the run came and Smush and I strapped on our warmer clothing since it was a bit chilling outside and headed to the venue. When we arrived there were tons of dogs! Every shape, size, color and all. Once the run started it was a bit crowded but soon spaced out as more athletic dogs took lead. Smush surprisingly wanted to run way more than anticipated.
