Earlier in the year, I took my senior photos. I decided to take some with Chipmunk, since she is my trusty leader and I seem to love her a lot more than Dingo. Here are some of the ones I received back.
The Wausua Dryland race is this weekend, the 16th and 17th of November!! Here is what are kennel will be entered in, both Katie and Carlleen are entered to participate in the race!!
2 dog Jr. Bike-Dingo and Rocket
2 dog adult bike, class B-Chipmunk and Cinnamon
1 dog adult bike, class A-Cloud
I hope this will be a great weekend, and that the dogs run well. All of these dogs, except Chipmunk are heading to their first race of the season. This will be Cinnamon's first race and Katie's too!! Cinnamon is paired with the perfect dog to experience with, and Katie has good dogs to help her out too. Overall, I hope we do well.... and well, hopefully place in one of our classes too?
Psssttt... Wednesday, the 13th is Carlleen's 18th Birthday!! Wish her a happy birthday
Hey all! This past weekend I ran at the Dirty Dog race in Pearson WI! It was fun, and I really pushed myself hard to compete. There are some pretty good runners that I compete against, and I myself am not a distance runner. Now, I am not making excuses, but I had a pretty tiring weekend. You see, at 4:30 Saturday morning I had gotten back into Green Bay from Kentucky. On that bus ride home, I only got about 2 hours of sleep. Then, I slept all the way up to the race sight, giving me about 4 hours of sleep for the day. I slept for 20 minutes before my race, and woke up with 9 minutes til my race. I quickly got myself and Chipmunk ready, ran over to the starting line and prepared to take off. I didn't really stretch, and was still tired. I came in dead last that day, a second behind the person in front of me.
Now, for day two. I got more sleep, but was sore when I woke up. My mom and I slept in the back of the SUV that we drove up there, and that is not comfortable at all. I was sore from the day before still too. In fact, I am really sore today yet. Day 2 was better, I came in 5th but didn't make up much time to improve my standings at all. I am proud of Chipmunk for constantly pushing me even tho I wanted to walk, and for keeping the line tight the whole way and ignoring the other dogs next to us.
I plan on doing the Willow Springs Dryland race, which is 12 days away yet!! I don't know what events I plan on running, I guess it depends on what we are driving for a vehicle and what all I can
