My 7 year old daughter has been urging me to let her start going out with me to run the dogs. Here are pictures from our first trail run together;
The days 1.5 to 2 mile loop starts just off our property;
The run starts on single track and is a series of gentle rollers out to the half way point;
The large tree in the distance is the mid-way point heading out.
We stopped for a short break and to take a few pictures with the dogs (check out my daughters Kat hat).
At the half way point the single track trail dumps out onto a jeep road, we head for home both smiling.
The day was cold (spitting snow) and windy, perfect for a run with the dogs. We all four; daughter, dad and dogs had a great time and will be getting out for future runs together regularly.Mar 11, 2012 at 8:29 pm #1852277

All of that. You and your darling daughter, your smart looking dog, the landscape, the photos that capture the movement, the fun and more. Thanks.Mar 11, 2012 at 9:35 pm #1852307
Thanks all for the kind comments.
Are home borders a large undeveloped area that has multiple options for trail running and short hikes.
Kat; The older shorter haired border collie is my dog Moxie, the longer haired border collie puppy is my daughters dog Millie. Border collies are great trail running / hiking dogs. The breed is extremely smart, have strong endurance (if kept fit) and are very loyal.
My daughter loves her Kat P hats. :)Mar 11, 2012 at 9:42 pm #1852311

I loved this man, definitely brought a huge smile to my face. Watching kids run is an education in fun, they just get it right.Mar 11, 2012 at 10:07 pm #1852319

Very cute. Glad you're taking her out. Good habit to start. Is this the same daughter that you took out a while back by that lake? I remember you did a trip report on that.Mar 12, 2012 at 4:39 am #1852361
I have only the one daughter and she has so far really enjoyed the time shared hiking and now trail running. I will continue to post on future adventures, both big and small.
My daughter brings a huge smile to my face every day. You are right in that kids just get it when it comes to running, it's about having fun and being outside.
