That Dog-Gone Run

Molly the Edhat Dog breaks down her 2010 State Street Dog Mile experience

June 6, 2010

By The Edhat Dog

It's not easy being the Edhat Dog.

There's the fame that comes with being on all those splash pages, the pressure of picking the winners of important Edhat contests like March Edness. And of course, the constant training I have to do to be in shape for the annual State Street Dog Mile.

It's possible that this year I over trained for the State Street Mile. And certainly, though my carbo-loading the night before was perfect, my head wasn't in the right place before the race. Instead of staying calm and collected, I barked and pranced. I was anxious to avenge my leash-losing performance from 2009. Even though I came in first last year, my handler was left far behind.
