    Well today I ran alone for the first time in 7 years. My faithful running partner died last week from cancer. I know he's a dog, but he never complained about the weather, time and always wanted to go. It was different running without holding a leash in my left hand.

    So sorry to hear of your running buddy's passing. It is such a shame their lives are so tragically short. I have lost a couple of running buddies over the years and feel your pain. Keep running and I am sure another running buddy will find you.

    I'm so sorry, Bill. I know that hurts. Our pets are our family, our best friends. Healing to you. :(

    Yup, that's him, he was 7. Pick in avatar from a 10 mile trail run a few years ago which he crushed easily. Compared to me...

    Sorry to hear that Bill. He looks happy in that picture - I'm sure that's how you'll remember him.
