Race Schedule

So it is starting! We only have about 350 training miles on so far, mostly are 10 mile runs with just a few 15- 20 mile runs in there. Weather in late December was all over the place and with the holidays and work schedules getting any kind of training in was a challenge. This weekend we are going to our first race format event. Our season opener was to be Eagle Lake but it was canceled do to lack of snow, they haven't recovered from the New Years rain drenching. The 12.5 mile fun run will be great to get the dogs into the swing of things! Then we are going to be busy!

Jan 15/16 - Eagle Lake 30 - Canceled
Jan 15 - Profile Falls Fun Run in Hill Village, NH
Jan22/23 - Stratford Nighthawk 15/15 in Stratford, NH
Feb 5 - Wilderness 30 in Greenville, ME
Feb 19 - Sandwich Notch 20 or 45 not decided yet. Sandwich, NH
March 5 - Can- Am 30 in Fort Kent, ME

On a side note the puppies are definitely loving running. Last weekend we kept our runs to 8 miles so the pups could join us. They have NO problems running that far even though they are loping the hole way. Henry really likes getting his wrists rubbed down afterwards too (liniment oil as a preventative)! Suzie is a total screamer and throws temper tantrums if we leave her behind. Lee has had it with her ear spliting screams and asked that I "PLEASE JUST TAKE THEM!!!!" They will be ready for sure to be apart of an 8 dog team ready to tackle some longer distances!!!! 60s here we come!
