2013 CHA Dog Jog

Tobey and I participated in the 23rd annual, 2013 CHA Dog Jog today at Genoa Park in downtown Columbus, OH. The weather was absolutely perfect and we finished the 5k in 23 minutes and 23 seconds. This put us on a 7:45 average mile. The big news is that Tobey finished third and received a gift basket full of treats at the finish! This is the 5th time we’ve run in this race (I was injured one year so I couldn’t participate). The first time was the day after my grandfather’s passing in 2008 so this race has always been special for me. This years time was our 3rd best (13 seconds behind last years time of 23:10).

The last few years I’ve been fortunate enough to do a lot of fundraising for the event and have raised over $3200 in total. I wasn’t able to do that this year due to the wedding and honeymoon and whatnot, but it still felt great to help a great cause in Citizens for Humane Action (a local shelter in Columbus). We’re already looking forward to the 2014 race!
