PORTLAND DOG RUNNER IN THE OREGONIAN

 

         Skye & Kona

  I grew up in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, with a beautiful Sheltie that I used to run on the beach all the time to help me train for track. After college in Florida, I moved to Portland and bought a house so we  could get our own dog Kona, now a 100lb English Coonhound/Great Pyrenees mix. I have worked in advertising for the past 10 years and now have been dog running for over two years About four years ago I started endurance running and spend my free time training with Team in Training, playing volleyball and running around the soccer field.

As I grew older I found that need for a dog’s company and Skye and I got KONA. I quickly remembered that having their unconditional companionship was extremely beneficial to my happiness. Dogs are always there to greet me with a lick and wag of their tail. They carry great personalities and constantly put a smile on my face. They can sense when I’m down and out or feeling great and know how to help balance life for me. I got into running about 2010 and did it mostly to lose weight. It took a while to enjoy running, but training with my wife and best friend, makes it more about quality time than exercise. We train with a group called Team In Training and now find ourselves running marathons and other endurance events (yeah for FUN!!). Everyday, I am able to combine two great things, exercise and dogs. And just as when I was a kid, dogs are happy and motivated to keep me moving forward.
