A trifecta of milestones on this morning's skijor!
|"We could go on ALL year long! Please don't let the snow melt!!!!" says the super happy trio.|
Zorro, of course, has come along for every skijor outing this season; but he typically runs only part of the outing while I take the kids out for more distance to exercise the youngsters.
It was a beautiful bluebird morning at Vail Pass with an incredible spring crust to support the team:
|Near the trailhead and the crust is PERFECT!|
|Perfect as far as the eye can see as the trio sprint along.|
Zorro & Jack in a synchronized sprint tuck with
Rudy the Missile powering along on the right.
|"I give up, these kids can't turnaround without a drop & roll!" declares happy Zorro.|
"Yep... Stop, Drop and ROLL!" demonstrates the goofs.
Here's a fun "two pass" video clip from the morning. The first pass has us galloping along the perfect crust with Zorro, Jack & Rudy. Note that polite kids have pulled back to match Zorro's preferred speed (a gentle gallop). Then, the second pass is the same stretch of crust but now Jack & Rudy can set their pace as we are zooming along. So nice of them to tune down when Zorro is along and then tune up when they are by themselves!

With a trifecta of impressive milestones, I think today's end of run treats were very well earned (but aren't they always :)
|"Serve them up!" says focused Zorro.|
"Well earned indeed!" adds happy Jack.
"I love skijoring!' declares cute Rudy.
2019/2020 Season to Date: 161 days on the trails covering 1100.6 miles with 100,400 feet of elevation climbed. Elder Zorro's exact miles for the season: 601.4 - impressive for an almost 12 year old stud!
