One of the reasons I got a new MTB is to take my Golden Retriever Sam to our favorite local park (Goosepond Mtn State Park) and run him while I ride the Fly Ti. We've done that twice in the past two weeks, most recently tonight. What a blast. On a downgrade I hit 22 mph and I couldn't drop my dog, he really can sprint. And he really does love it. Me too. Makes me feel like a boy out for a run with his dog. Didn't have a dog when I was a kid.
Man, that was just too friggin great. Pics of my dog and the bench we rode to below. We only went three miles but the Zen was just over the top. I'm getting a feel for what Sam can tolerate, next time we'll go a little further. Great workout for him. God I do love that dog. Sheer joy tonight.
