Well, well not bad, second place at the Rondy World Champs only beat by our good friend Arleigh. Rondy has a new champ and who could hold the crown better than Arleigh. Congrats to Arleigh, Donna and Team Reynolds for a well run race and a beautiful team!
I trimmed my team down to 10 dogs and started out with my main focus on Ken Chezik and Kevin Cook since Arleigh was way too far ahead of me to do anything about in one heat. Both Ken and Kevin showed good speed in their previous heats and could possibly be a threat. My team settled in to their trained in pace almost immediately and it was smooth sailing from there. I passed Ken Chezik on the home stretch and all dogs were eager to get up Cordova hill and reach the finish line, simple as that! Why isn’t it always that easy??? My 12th Rondy race and I still haven’t figured it out... guess that is the charm of it all. A few days of rest and then back in harness to figure out who will be in the Open North American (IFSS Open race) team. Maybe I should just start with the 10 dogs I finished the Rondy with?
