Catch Up

Beautiful shot of my out-stretched, sprinting skijor partners!
Flying... Literally flying! Wheeee!
Usually Max & Zorro shift into "sprint speed gear" in unison. Whether it is a "hike up" call from me or just the two of them deciding to "floor it" - it almost always happens in unison. Well, this morning was a rare exception, I called out "hike up" and Max floored it; but Zorro was distracted by something to our right and missed the group speed up...
"Hey little bro - you are behind! Didn't you hear the ok to 'floor it'? Catch up!!!" says Max looking
back at lagging behind Zorro (who, as you see, quickly realized what he missed and launched to
keep up :)
Zorro launch to catch up completed, now this is normal:
Sprint stretched Zorro in line with sprint tucked Max.
A little further along and...
"Excuse me; but WHO is behind now?!?" states Zorro to snow angel rolling flat tire Max.
Back to sprinting again:
Sprint stretched Max flying along with sprint tucked Zorro.

Only time for a short outing at Rabbit Ears Pass this morning. But, as you can see by the photos, we had it floored most of the short run: 5.8 miles traveled with 450 feet of elevation and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 38 days on the trails covering 284.9 miles with 28,650 feet of elevation climbed.
