Ryan got this email today from USAFit, the national running group that he's a part of--technically a local chapter or whatever. Anyway...
"USAFit develops PetFit"
USA FIT began its running and walking program 16 years ago. In the last few years, we have added Eat Fit, a nutrition program. Now we are developing a new program, called "Pet Fit," for people who want to exercise with their dogs. We are looking for someone to help us plan, launch and manage a pilot program in Houston for Pet Fit. This is not a full time position, and payment would be partly tied to the success of the program.
Okay, let's talk about my dog and exercise and the word "successful." Highly unlikely. She loves to run. She is healthy and big enough to keep up with Ryan. She is, however, even more ADD than he is. She's running and running, la la la, SQUIRREL! And she tears your arm out of the socket as she tries to catch and eat the squirrel. At those moments, she is single-minded and no leash or pinch-collar can deter her. Heck, she doesn't even realize they exist.
Momma, I want to go running, too!
