Run Like Dogs!

Yesterday was the 5k for my service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega and it was a blast! The race was called Run Like Dogs and all of the proceeds went to the Animal Friends Foundation. Nothing like puppies to motivate me to run :) And run I did! There were about 75 people in the race and I came in THIRD PLACE! I was so excited that I finished behind only two guys after a little over 25 minutes. I would say it was a very successful day! Some people even brought their dogs to walk with and I couldn't help but think about my own puppy back home...

It's so sad not being able to see Rosie for 2-3 weeks at a time because I miss her so much! Over the summer she was my little buddy and would always follow me around the house. Normally she'd be stuck in her cage all day when my parents are at work, so when me and my sister are home for break she loves the company :) She loves cuddling up on my bed and stealing the peanut butter jar when we've finished it... *sigh* She's such a little puppy (even though she's 7 years old) and I just love her to death. 

So if running 3.1 miles can help out a dog as adorable and loving as my own, then I would do that every day of my life. I guess it's good that I love to run, though, or else I probably would have a very different opinion. Haha, but I'm so glad I got to be a part of this 5k and help out all of those animals in need :)
