5 dogs in a people’s race

This is one of more than 750 people who participated in the Mardi Gras 5K Saturday in Marietta, Georgia.   What makes Jen Gregg unusual is her dogs.    She ran the 3.1 mile course with 5 dogs on a leash.   I thought the run might be easier with 5 dogs pulling her, but she says it’s not so.  Unlike the harness teams we see pulling sleds in Alaska, these 5 canines are pulling Jen in different directions.  It was a beautiful but cold morning for a race that began and ended at the square in downtown Marietta.   It was 29 degrees at the 8 a.m. start and didn’t warm much during the next hour.  You can see the complete results of the race at    sdracetimingservices.com     I expect to post a photo slide show sometime Sunday.
