I know very well from experience how running improves health & well being especially self esteem. I want to encourage as many people especially children to enjoy sports either alone or with dogs. I want to inspire them to do what they though not possible.... I use my husky dogs to encourage shy or unresponsive children to run and those more confident to push themselves a little harder. We resued a dog close to death and through running have transformed his life. He in return inspires others through his inspirational story and attitude to life even though he was so badly treated as a puppy. Children are drawn to him and he responds. I was once told that I would never run again through injury - I now run 50 mile races for fun!Sandra is an ultra athlete who regularly runs 50K + miles with her beloved huskies and alone - grit and determination epitomise this lady.
