This is what life here at Miortuk is all about.
It was a fun week and Alex did a great job here with the dogs You for her first exposure to them running. Alex is finding that she has muscles that she never thought she had.
Of coarse the dogs were even more enthusiastic to run after the long layoff.
It will take a few runs to get them back into the condition (physically and mentally) that they had before Christmas. You can see they lost that competitive edge!
That is all okay, as we have nothing but time to accomplish this.
Here it is all about the life of interacting with these canin athletes and racing is secondary.
I prefer the peace and quiet of the forest compared to the frenzied craziness of the race.
Life here is all about priorities. Here it is about the interaction with the dogs and nature.
We accomplished three days of running two teams (2x 4.5 miles and one 7 miles)
Until next week.......
