The usual "full attention" as we hand out the "end of run" treats this morning :)
|"You have our COMPLETE attention!" declares the focused & happy trio.|
I started the day with young Jack & Rudy on backcountry trails but we quickly dropped onto the wide groomed trails of Gold Run Nordic Center. We have learned this year that if you get to the upper elevation trails before 9am then you are typically first (or at worst second) tracks on the freshly groomed terrain. Today was just as planned as we dropped out of the forest onto the highest elevation nordic trail and found the fresh groomie zoomie all to ourselves!!!

We skijored a couple of loops at the nordic center and also added one "out & back" trail for more distance. Of course, "out & back" means you stop to turnaround at some point. Love this "pot calling the kettle black" look from Jack to Rudy:
|"Really? Must you roll at every turnaround?" says 'pot calling the kettle black' Jack.|
"Rub a dub dub, you know you want to join!" replies rolling Rudy.
|"I rest my case!" says Rudy walking off to restart our run.|
"Ok, ok, I guess I DO want to join!" demonstrates 'I always roll' Jack.
|"Sniff, sniff, I think these moose tracks are FRESH!" says moose inspector Jack.|
"Scanning, scanning...." adds moose surveying Rudy.
|"Hi... bye!" says the flirtatious pair running by a guy coming up the trail.|
|"Hi dude - which way to the moose?" asks Jack & Rudy as they run on by.|
|"Whee - love running as three!" says the happy trio.|
