Doggy 5k

I finally found my camera cord, so I can post some pictures from the fall!

Back in November we ran in the 2nd Annual Doggy 5k at Castle Island to benefit MSPCA-Angell.  I would highly recommend this race to anyone in the Boston area who love dogs and 5ks.  It was so much fun!

We were out at Castle Island, which is in Southie (that’s South Boston to the rest of the world).  It was a beautiful day, if only a bit windy out on the ocean.

Over three hundred people (176 of which brought dogs) showed up.  There were tons of dogs of all shapes and sizes.

Matt ran with April and I just tried to run the whole thing (didn’t work).  Matt and April finished in 29:42, and that was with a break to lay down!  April got worn out for a second.  I ran it in 39:40 (this was about a month before I started half marathon training, I’m much faster now).   The winning dog, named Murdoch, was a white Westie who ran it in 17:13!!  Doesn’t he look like he’s having fun!?!

There were tons of great pictures of Matt and April running.  See if you can spot them coming around the corner!

And here they come to the finish line:

At the end, I got some good kisses and snuggles from the best little runner (oh, and Matt, too)

It was a great day!  I hope we find another doggy 5k to run this spring or summer!
