Mini Dachshund runs a marathon 26.2 miles

Yes you read that right! My dachshund TruMan all 9 pounds of him ,ran a marathon on a gravel trail in 6:17.
He ran and raised money for a Doxie named Sunshine that was abandoned in the cold and snow near a dumpster she is being helped by KARF a senior dog rescue Kentucky. She is in the hospital and has fought for her life. TruMan raised $807.00 to help with her medical bills. She is doing much better and seems to be getting better everyday.

He could of run it faster but his pacer me ,was slow from running the 50k the day before and Coldwater rumble 100, 5 days before .

He was so strong and never slowed down I was the one who was slow.
Just because a Doxie is small does not mean they can't do epic shit. 
TruMan has come a long way in two years since i fostered him and adopted him. He could not walk around the block because he was afraid of the world .
Now he's running wilderness trails with me.
He is my inspiration , he has taught me that having short legs means nothing overcoming all obstacles is in our mind.
I hope he can motivate you to get out and run. The DirtDoxie is amazing!!

You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.

Broken toes suck!!!

I was not able to run Rio del lago 100 because last Wednesday I accidentally kicked the Corner  of my wall, in my room and broke toe 4 & 5.
My ortho doctor is awesome he has allowed me to continue to run a couple miles a day. I'm slow and can't bend my left toes i tape them but hey Im keeping my running streak alive.

I celebrated 2 years of running everyday day 730 days on Sunday.
I ran 3 miles with TruMan on my broken toes
I feel grateful and thankful even with these broken toes . It could of been worse.
I see the doctor again for another x-ray before Quad Dipsea 28 miler. I hope I'm all healed since I will be running that race for the 17th time.
Life is good��

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

I finished my 7th javelina 100.  It was my slowest time of 7. I finished in 28:40 I think.
But I had fun even though I struggled.
I will see how I feel mid week and decided if I will be running Rio del lago 100 Saturday. I feel trashed today , which is not normal for me.
I am grateful and thankful. Life is good. Have a great week friends.

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.

I guess it's been awhile since a post. Just getting ready for Javelina 100. I will be going for my 7th finish there. I was doing a short easy run Tuesday and almost fell. I ended up pulling my glute hamstring area. I've been getting laser treatment so it's doing better.
Today I took Truman to parties at PetSmart and Petco.

I don't think Truman was much into it. Once we got home to run he was happy.
Ok friends send me positve vibes for Javelina 100.
You can follow me on my Facebook athlete page , twitter and Instagram. Seems like I mostly post on those outlites these days.
Happy Halloween
