In honor of National Dog Day, we would like to introduce you to some of the beloved doggos of imATHLETE (with guest appearances by a few of their feline friends).
Dogs (and cats) teach us much about love and life, and as it turns out, about staying active and healthy. Here are some of those lessons!
There is nothing better for the the heart, mind, and body than getting outside. ~ Poncho
If you are having motivation issues and can't seem to get out the door for your run, just call a friend. ~ Braum and Saki
Attitude is everything! Believe in yourself. ~ Gizmo
Don't get distracted from your goal. Stay focused. ~ Charlie
Take risks and do things that might seem scary. ~ Poncho
Endurance sports are about developing your own engine and courage. You won't find those in a store. ~ Braum
Take time to stretch. ~ Lucy
Visualization is important for preparing the mind. ~ Kuma
Keep a healthy work/fun balance. Log off and head outside! ~ Sinatra
Do everything with a heart full of joy. ~ Bella
The hardest climbs and the biggest challenges reward us with the greatest views. ~ Poncho
Bored? Change up your training with a road trip! (Human driver recommended, don't just run off.) ~ Bella & friend
Crosstrain. ~ Poncho
Get lots of rest. ~ Gizmo and Poncho
It's about the journey, not the destination. ~ Braum
Hope you enjoyed our doggo bloggo!
