When I think of a furry four legged running companion, man's best friend is what comes to mind, but during the past year, we met two of the coolest four legged running buddies.
First up is this cute little guy. We met this running buddy last May at the Cradle to the Grave race. His owners told us he loves to hang out with the family dogs, he's treated as one of the pack, and joins them on all their runs. His long distance runs are 5 miles...
Second up is Java. We met Java in January at the Frosty Foot 50k where owner Leah and Java were the "sweep crew" for the event. Owners Leah and Jay brought Java from Leadville, Colorado to their new home in Brevard. Java is an ultra-runner and has covered distances up to 50 miles.
So there you have it, a couple of awesome running companions!
