Miles With Mya

Well it’s official, my jog is slower than my dog’s fast walk! 

If you know me, you know that I am not a runner whatsoever, but I kind of want to be. The trouble that I have is staying motivated. On top of managing Hello Canine, I also work a full time job from 8-5 Monday through Friday. When I get home from work, all I want to do is relax and spend time with my dog, Mya.

Well, the other day while scrolling through Facebook, I came across an event from a local animal shelter who is hosting a pet friendly 5k in September and October. I thought “what a great idea!” And guess who signed up for those 5k's? This gal. Then I remembered, I’m not a runner!

After some scary moments running through my head, I thought, well this would be a great way for me to get in shape and stay motivated while spending time with Mya! It’s also beneficial for her too! 

So last week, Mya and I have started a new running challenge! With the help of the app 5K Runner (Couch to 5K) and my wonderful husband, we are training for our first 5k in September. I will be posting about our progress here on the blog every week as well as on our Instagram with the hashtag #mileswithmya. We would love for you to join us on our journey, so be sure to follow us on Instagram @hellocanine.
