Sure, it’s nice to cross the finish line with your human running buddies, but don’t forget about your best furry friend. Dogs can also benefit from the numerous mental and physical benefits that running offers. Including your pup on your next virtual race might just boost your motivation enough to crush a new goal or earn a PR (personal record)!
