Pittsburgh Pet Marathon
The annual Pittsburgh Marathon kicked off race weekend with 5k runs, a festival and events for everyone… including dogs!
Paws Over Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Marathon, and Purina Pro Plan sponsored the first Pet Marathon. Thankfully, the event was not the traditional 26.2 miles (someone would’ve had to carry Leko and I to the finish!). The race looped through Point State Park and along the riverfront. It was the most scenic walk we’ve done so far!
Leko has competed in walks before, but this one was a big deal since it was the first time he’s ever been in heart of downtown Pittsburgh! All the new noises, traffic and people had him a little nervous and scared, so he spent the time before and after the race being carried around. Needless to say, he slept like a baby from all the excitement once we got home!
