Running With Dogs

“I have been running with my dogs since they were puppies—they are now 6, 11 and 12. I can’t get up in the morning without expectant eyes following me wherever I go, watching to see if I will give in to their demands. Even when I’m not in the mood—too tired or too busy—I put on my shorts, my shoes and we’re off on our daily run. After it’s over, I feel great for the rest of the day. I’m 66 years old, and I plan on keeping this schedule as long as my dogs keep pushing me.”
