This year's race tally: 5th place overall and 1st place in my age group - woohoo!
Here we go.....
|"Go!" says the race marshall and "BOOOOM!" go Max & Zorro launching off the start|
line. The really get "race" and love blowing out of the crowd as quick as possible.
|10 feet or so off the starting line and the huskies are hitting stride as the human|
hangs on for dear life :-)
|"Out in front, exactly where we belong!" say the smiling & sprinting pair as we are|
establishing our typical lead out the gates. It is funny to hear the crowd gasping and
exclaiming, "Look at those huskies!" as we fly out of the chutes.
|We just rounded the last corner and are in the final straightaway to the finish line.|
|Perfectly synchronized from start to end.|
Why am I the only one who is tired? :-)
Zoom, zoom, zoom - if only I could keep up.... Oh well, we did place first in my age group (fast, young kids in front of us) and a great time had by all! Thanks to our friend Justin Saunders for the great action shots from the race!
|Zorro sporting our "first in age group" ribbon!|
|The full "bag of swag" we got for running the race!|
The ribbon, 2 stuffies and box of Buddy Biscuits were the "first place" reward to
go along with the rest of the swag handed out at the event. Oh, and the human got
a t-shirt too :-)
Pray for Snow.....
