Not that he's ever really gone away.
Since 2007, Luc has been a busy dog, backpacking and trail running. He has a dog brother (Neb) now, and lost a dog sister (RIP Teagan).
He's done the La Cloche Silhouette Trail in Killarney in 2 days with me and our friend Julian - the first dog to do so - and done 60k one-day hikes and 40k runs.
As he's gotten older, he's started to slow down, but with some thyroid med adjustments and supplements with anti-inflammatory (Devil's Claw) he's bouncing back and running again.
Our current plan, if his body holds up, is to do a big as yet not public run next year! Stay tuned for our training!
Here he is last weekend training in Beaver Valley:
Handsomer than ever. We did a three hour run followed by a short hike.
Hopefully he can stay young enough for our training and the unsupported run. I'm having a great time having him running with me again, it's so nice.
Here's Luc with Neb (who is not a very good runner) on a recent trail run in Speyside:
