During the Covid 19 Pandemic, has given me time to reminisce about some of my adventures racing dogs over the years.
I have reflected on some of the great dogs that I have had the privilege of sharing these adventures with.
When I moved here to the forest, I really had the opportunity to train, develop a kennel of dogs to pursue my desire to run mid/long distance races.
Here I found the perfect place to have trails that suited the conditioning and training for these advents and the freedom to develop a kennel required.
I had the privilege of working with these amazing athletes over miles of beautiful, uninhabited forested trails.
The above photos are of two of my teams running the last of my mid/long distance races.
The last race at Eagle Lake 100, my older leader Aurora, Lead me to the finish line when I froze the cornea in my eyes and was unable to see.
That bonding and her devotion to me saved the day.
What more can be said of the faith I had in my dogs.
Until next week.......
