Zorro and I had a blast zooming around the fast packed terrain yesterday morning.
The best word to describe Zorro's actions: FLYING!
|Wheeee we go behind flying Zorro Zeeeee!|
Love this shot of my impressive skijor partner flying along the trail!
Zorro was really into the outing and was in a fast sprint all morning. If he was not flying, as shown above, then he was hovering instead:

Come along for a quick minute of our fast skijor outing. Zorro is really in a fast & fun stride. Pay some attention to the last 10 seconds or so of the video... We come upon a hard left in the trail as Zorro leans into the turn perfectly. I, on the other hand, was not sure I could make the tight turn. The trail was so ridiculously fast packed that I did not know if I could cut my skis into the same tight turn as Zorro. If your volume is up high, you should be able to hear my skis scraping loudly during this turn and I was using all my leg strength to try push and cut the skis into the turn. It may look like the turn was executed with no problem; but the scraping you hear (and the burning I felt in my legs :) tells you how hard it was for me to keep pace with Zorro. Phew!
