No, not really, but it was dusk when the fur-girls and I set out last night. See, Sissy has become a BEAST about walks. Gretchen gets excited when a walk seems evident and zooms around the house as only wee doggies seem to do, literally bouncing off furniture and walls, but Sissy will throw a fit and DEMAND a walk if one isn’t forthcoming.
So, I quickly slipped into my walking shoes and socks and slapped on their harnesses, and away we went, even though it was getting darker by the second. We managed, in part because one end of our road is more populated and has a few streetlights, but I’m hoping some of you who walk and/or run regularly can share your secrets with me.
Sissy isn’t going to give up walks because it’s too hot, and walking in the morning before work isn’t safe at all with everyone on our road heading to work or school, so we’ll just adjust the length and intensity of our walks to her constitution. I have a doggy water attachment I can put on a water bottle and take water with us. What else?
For future late walks, I do have day-glo neckerchiefs for each dog (thanks to my sister), and I have a head lamp thingee from LL Bean
I can dig out from wherever I put it. Any other hands-free to hold on tight to two retractable leashes tips for walking in the dark?
Oh – and I happened to have on my New Balance Rock & Tone shoes last night. I like them, but since I rotate between three pairs of shoes for walking, I don’t know that they’ve made a huge difference in my tone or shape.
What are your favorite walking/running tips, accessories or what have you?
