My weimaraner Lillian and I participated in the 5K for K9’s last Saturday at Alum Creek state park that benefited Friends of the Shelter. We had a great time and Lillian finished 3rd and received her first medal.
The course was a trail course and wasn’t a full 5 kilometers. It also wasn’t marked very well so it was hard to figure out where to go. My GPS watch had the course at 2.76 miles and Lil and I finished in 22 minutes and 58 seconds. Hopefully next year they’ll have the course marked better or have volunteers at the various turns.
Below are some pictures from the event.

Lili was not amused by her 3rd place finish.
Afterwards, Friends of the Shelter sent out a nice email.
Despite the course issues, we had a great time and this is definitely a race we’ll participate in again next year (provided it’s on a Buckeye off week).
