Michael J Foxy. 

When I first started running five years ago, Foxy was with me every sweaty step of the way.  As my mileage increased, I hesitated to bring him since he couldn’t exactly carry water.  The longest run I ever took him on was eight miles, I think.   I stopped and let him drink out of my water bottle a few times along the way and he seemed happy to keep up.  

He was just a puppy! With his honorary half marathon medal!

Five years later, he’s no longer a two year old pup.  The vet actually called him a “senior dog” a few months ago when I brought him in for some tummy issues.   It’s been so warm, and he’s been reluctant to crawl out of bed with me at 5 am- so I haven’t brought him with me since early June.  

Today- at 8:30 with 3 easy miles planned on a crisp September morning- he was more than happy to join me!  

He was mostly well behaved.  He did some serious barking/shrieking at another dog at around mile 2- but other than that he just trotted along beside me, looking furry and adorable. 

He’s pretty much been sleeping ever since.  

But I keep waking him up for kisses.  He has my whole heart.  I love him so.
