sun, 18-feb-2007, 13:52Today was the second day of the Gold Run, the first championship series race of the season. It's a two day race, with the 4-dog class going 5.9 miles on both days. In yesterday's race Andrea and the dogs were in second place, six seconds ahead of the third place finisher. They were twenty seconds slower today, but finished ahead of the third place team by 0.5 seconds, for a final time between the two days of 39 minutes 38.9 seconds and a second place finish! I'm very proud of Andrea and the dogs. It's a lot of work, and while I know she enjoys it, a second place trophy with an entire team of rescued and misfit dogs is quite an accomplishment and a nice reward for her effort.
