I love running with Titan but haven't been able to lately. I don't trail run, but we do hike on occasion and he loves it.
I use a "Hunter" Cross body leash when we run. I could only find it in Germany so a couple friends of mine are going to visit family there and are going to try to find me a new one so excited.

I street jog with all 3 sometimes. Now that's interesting. Its will only last about 3 k's, other then that I usually just take tyson, the rest is with my SO trail running.

"The only time I would run is if my life is in danger. And then I would probably only make it about 2 minutes and then die a horrible death, either murder or heart attack."
This would be me too!
I actually want to start jogging, I don't think I could ever become a dedicated runner though.

|scarfish||gotta say i'm with the majority. no running for me. i absolutely hate running. to me it's a super annoying torture on the body. i really can't understand how some people like it. the whole reason i didn't re-enlist in the army was i was so sick of lining up at 6:30 am to run an hour everyday while hung over.|

|Juliem24||Thank you! I'll check it out. Can't use a leash, I've lost the strength in my hands due to a neck injury, so that will be perfect.|

Julie, it's made by Ruffwear and I think it's called the Omnijore system, they also make a web harness that is pretty similar in design.
The system comes with a leash and body harness as well...i don't like the leash, it's way too long for city running but works well on trails. In the photos I have the ruffwear roamer leash attached to it instead since it's shorter.
As you can see I let mine run off leash on trails as well and they love it! Kafka, the Briard will run ahead maybe 7-8 ft. and then turn and wait, then run again...Watson will stay right with me. It's not legal here so I don't let them run off leash very often.
That photo happened to be taken while I was sweeping part of the course to a local 100 mile ultra event making sure it was in good shape and I was pretty sure it would be empty.
I aim for 60-70 miles a week since I have a race coming up but otherwise I stick to 40-50, the dogs do maybe 20 of those with me.

|Muskeg||Yup, I run with my dogs daily on the trails- often around 100 miles/week. They love it. I love it. It forms a special bond, I feel like a complete "pack" out there in the woods, and the smells, sights, and forward movement make the dogs content and happy. I have three dogs, so I go without leashes whenever possible. It is legal in the State park nearby, and "voice control" legal in the city. We are lucky.|

|Juliem24||OP, what kind of harness did you say that is? I run, but have not been happy with the arrangement I have cuz Rudy weaves. That looks like it might solve some problems.|

I've been running since high school cross country...but i'm pretty sure i kept doing it because of the dogs. When I adopted my first GSD I lived in an apartment and figured a good exercise routine would keep her from eating my living room.
It worked...for the most part. I lost a few college textbooks but who needs those...
Ruffwear make cool stuff for running or hiking, i have a hydration type thing like a camelbak for myself just made by another company. I also have a collapsible silicone cup thing that slides right into a pocket and i can fill that with water for the dogs.
