After training like crazy any time the weather suited and I had a ride it came time to race them in February (previous races got canceled or turned into demos). Ronin still wasn't 100% with all of his commands but he I had Lady as his co-lead dog and I knew she'd keep him in line and force him to do as I said.
The race was 4miles each day (2 days) and the trail was curvy but relatively flat which though not exciting for more experienced mushers, a perfect starting race for us!
We finished Saturday's race in 2nd place with a time of 23 minutes and 21 seconds! I was sooooo happy!!!!!
The next day I had a different co-lead dog, 9 year-old Shawney. She did amazing though and was able to control Ronin fairly well even though she was about 1/2 his size!
We finished Sunday's race with a time of 19minutes and 47 seconds which held our Second Place position!!!! Woohoo!!!!
