Running Happy reasons to run

Running is not complicated you simply put one foot in front of the other, the more you run the more you see improvement.
 We all run for different reasons; I run as it makes me feel happy, I run as I love running to build bone mass, I run as I love spending time out doors.......
BUT I LOVE running with my Mini Pin Hammer! He makes me laugh and I swell with pride when we pass other runners or joggers and they exclaim oh my how adorable!

Run Happy Be Happy, I learn a lot from running with Hammer, he stops to sniff the air, the whiff of a scent can have him going crazy!, when he wants to run fast he engages his hip flexors and looks like a Black Panther as he is an inquisitive little dog and a squirrel will have him in a full gallop with me in full stride at the other end of the leash! When he is thirsty he stops and looks up time for some fuel! And when he is tired and done he stops!
Hammer is a cool little runner, he runs happy, he eats, he sleeps and gives unconditional love.
