High School Cross Country Team Trains With Shelter Dogs
Talk about the best idea for a high school cross country workout ever!
Students from St. Joseph’s High School in Santa Maria, CA took shelter dogs out for their morning run.
The idea is the brainchild of Coach Luis Escobar.
Coach Escobar explained on Facebook, “Each team member was assigned a dog and we went out for a couple miles around the shelter. I am not sure who was more excited and having the most fun…the dogs or the kids.”
Well, except for one dog, named, “Fred,” who clearly didn’t see the brilliance.
At about :42 into the video you can see a runner named, Josh, who did the kind thing and catered to Fred’s lack of enthusiasm for running.
