@Joe Nation,

one spring i got in great shape letting a staffordshire terrier drag me up the hill to comm ave every night.
she seemingly forced me to sprint faster than i could have on my own.
that dog had some energy, boy... never, ever got tired.
and then, when we got home, she'd grab one of her (many) toys and want to play for hours on end...

@jespah,
Are you sure you mean 9/3 (Monday), not 9/2 (Sunday)? Because I could run with you on Sunday.

We have the folks here on 9/2. Plus it's the intergalactic holiday and all.

@Region Philbis,
I knew an old codger who used to spend all afternoon in the park exhausting his dog. He liked it to get 12 hours sleep every night for his peace of mind. He would sit on a bench reading the paper, on the pavillion deck if it was raining, and encourage young lads to throw a stick as far as they could. When he had it bring the stick back and fall upon its knees, with its tail moving slightly now and again, he would call it a day.

You're mistake was to try to tire the dog out using your own energy resources and Mr Bolt would have no chance with that dog in the park. In fact the old codger had discovered that when he put his shoulder out throwing the stick himself.

@Region Philbis,
I'm in.

(Note: This run often sells out a month in advance. Booking early is a good idea here.)

@Thomas,
Noddy's daughter-in-law is also running (I know her from SparkPeople). Dunno about her husband (Son of Noddy) but I would guess he'd be coming along as well.

Keep it up RP. Another ten years and you'll be greased lightning at that rate.
