Most people are enjoying the warm weather we've been having the last week. We are not like most people! This weather has been making me (and the dogs) frustrated. Last Saturday I got a slow start in the morning on running dogs and it wasn't until 10 that the dogs were hooked up and we were headed down the drive. It felt warm but cool enough for an easy run. That was until 2.5 miles in the sun came out from behind the clouds. I stopped and watered the dogs. Then we turned around and headed home. Way shorter than we have been running lately. Along the way we stopped in a few shady spots to take a break.
The rest of the week we've been running at night to avoid the heat. This weekend we have "off" but next weekend we head to Priest Lake for another race! We really like this race. Friendly people, nice course, beautiful country. Can't wait.
The one positive of this weather is that the littlest musher has been joining me to feed dogs. That's a lot of fun. He does all the food scooping, watering, and poop locating. I really enjoy his company and seeing him interact with the dogs. He claims his favorite dog is the crazy one, Paluk. She is sweet!
Love your puppas!
