and look ready & willing to run another 4K!
- We shaved almost 30 seconds off our previous "fastest time" - finishing in 17m 10s!
- We placed 8th overall in the race!
- We placed 2nd in my (the human's) age group!
The start of the race made the front page of the local Summit Daily newspaper, here are some scans of that front page - sorry it's kind of grainy... The result of a scan of a newspaper using my el-cheapo scanner:
|Closeup of Max & Zorro taking off at the starting line.|
Shoulder to shoulder, legs in unison, happy faces.
These 2 "get it" when it comes to racing!
It's also fun to scroll through the "finish line shots" of the race - patient, this page has over 140 images! What's so interesting? Most of the dogs cross the finish line at or behind their human partner. The exception? Max & Zorro - they finish every race in full sprint at the extension of their gangline (leash, in this case). No human, on foot, can match their speed & endurance!
