What My Dog Taught Me About Running

My dog Buzz and I have been running partners for the last six years. He's a good friend, a great listener and the most enthusiastic runner I know. He explores the world on four feet with his nose to the ground and his tail in the air. We've covered hundreds of miles together and, along the way, he's taught me some very important lessons.

Not every run is perfect. Buzz has his share of naughty moments during our runs. But even then, he reminds me that we all run for our own reasons and at our own pace. If nothing else, enjoy the miles. Fast, slow, easy or hard—cherish them all.
