Charlie Brown, Official iRun Store Dog

My name is Charlie Brown Allen and I’m the store dog for iRun Texas. I’m three years old and have been training for this position from the day I was adopted by Mitch and Michele. If you think training with Coach Mitch for a 5K, 10K, half or full marathon is tough, you should have him train you for this job - no days off and plenty of distractions. There are always people coming in, wanting me to lean on them and give them kisses, and I’m expected to keep all four feet on the ground. Why do you think they call us Boxers? We want to BOX!

I’m usually at the Bitters store on Fridays but frequent the Stone Oak and Dominion stores on a weekly basis. I’m pretty easy to recognize - black and white and not quite 2 feet tall.

I run occasionally but never more than about 3 miles. I’m a sprinter really. I have a couple of workouts that I’ve developed for my particular type of running.

  • The “shade tree interval” it’s basically running from shade tree to shade tree.
  • The “fat cat sprint” I chase Max and then lay on him. Keeps me in shape and ready to race!
Stop by and meet me.
