My New Running Partner

I am using the ever-so-popular Couch to 5k program to get my butt into shape, currently I’m on week 2, day 2. Week 2 consists of a 4 minute warm up followed by alternating walking for 2 minutes and jogging for a minute and a half. It’s getting easier, even with the wind as biting as it is!

Yesterday my husband and I put one of our dogs to sleep, Spike. He and his brother, Atlas, (along with 4 other viable pups) were born into our hands as their mother died. We raised these two from birth- we were all they knew, they were our children. The two were inseparable….

It is extremely devastating to us and my heart breaks for our remaining dog, who looks to the back door at every noise, waiting for his brother to return…

Which brings me back to today’s run. It was special to me, my first run since he passed, and I  knew he was running with me, pushing me further and harder. He will always run by my side now, my new running partner.

He was so handsome
