Training Run: June 21, 2011

Date: June 21, 2011

Distance: 3.51 miles. 30 minutes

Weather: 45 degrees  and overcast

Equipment: ATV

Trail Conditions: dirt road

Dog Positions: 12 dog team. ZakWidgeon, Eddie-Jane, Raegan-Shrike, Dale-Drifter, Scoter-Rabbit, Snap-Lark

Music Choice: None

Notes: Today is the summer solstice and the longest day of the year. With nearly 24 hours of daylight today and starting tomorrow we will lose light progressively towards the winter solstice. What does that mean? We are on the downhill towards the next racing season. Yay!

Today was a good run with the “seasoned” dogs. All of them did well, including Raegan. This was just her second run with the big team. I think she will do great this year. We had a couple head on passes including the big tour team that met us on Allen Road.
