It isn’t my birthday, but it is Kobi’s birthday today. Coincidentally, there is a fun run and half marathon on the same day. You would almost think I planned it that way, but it wasn’t entirely intentional.
I was never exactly certain about Kobi’s actual birthdate, but September 21 seemed close (based on the approximate age she was when I found her). I also liked that date as it’s nearly the equinox which is cool (not so cool that the days get shorter now). Turns out we also plan a community half marathon and fun run the third Saturday of every September and today’s event fell on the 21st.
How many dogs can say they have over 100 people, 25 dogs, and a trail run for a birthday party? I doubt too many and if they are out there, I’d love to hear about their parties!
Because I’m one of the race coordinators I wasn’t able to run the race, but Kobi did run the half marathon with her Godmother (yes, she has a Godmother) and they both had a great time and ran pretty fast too.
I had the best time cheering on other runners and walkers and would highly recommend any runners out there who haven’t volunteered at a race yet to do so. It is a lot of fun.
Happy second birthday Kobi!
