This is Maddie.

Maddie is the fur-love of my life and she’s every bit Jack Russell Terrier. She’s hyper, she jumps, she’s loyal, and she loves to play.

She also loves to run. Like, seriously, loves to run. Nothing makes her happier than hearing the beep of my Garmin, then seeing the leash come out. The Garmin beeps means it’s time to run, the leash let’s her know she’s coming with me. She’s goes CRAZY when I get the leash on her and get her outside. It’s her absolute favorite time of the week. She jumps in circles, she barks, and she pulls hard, just waiting to sprint off.

When we finally get moving, she’s dead focused. Nothing will stand in her way of running with her mama. A squirrel ran by? pshh. That other dog over there? Big deal. Those bushes that desperately need to be sniffed? She’ll get to them later. This is her time to run. Everything else is below that.

Maddie usually goes 2-3 miles and I try to bring her out for a good run at least once a week. When we’re not running, we walk a mile around the neighborhood. Maddie has a lot of energy and a good run or walk helps alleviate that (though, she still bounces off the walls).

Maddie is fit and strong and I like to attribute that to her weekly runs and daily walks. Not only do out outings keep Maddie fit, but they keep me active as well. There’s no greater motivator for getting my butt out the door, than knowing how happy it makes Maddie. She loves it.
