Palm Springs, California

Clark Klein
65F / 18C
Total Time = 23m 6s
Overall Rank = 36/313
Age Group = Small Dog
Age Group Rank = 1/3
Pre-race routine:

The usual for a Palm Springs race, I woke up 45 minutes before rolling out the door, had a PB and honey and a coffee.
Event warmup:

We took an easy trot 2-3 miles to Ruth Hardy Park
  • 23m 6s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 27s  min/mile

My goal was to show up to support friends, let the dog have a fun run, and have an easy trot during taper week prior to Oceanside.

Boo had a great sniffing exploration trot before the race. It took her about 20 seconds after the gun to figure out what we were doing, then happily followed the crowd in front of us. She set the pace, and it was way faster than it felt, since Boo and I were at an easy pace. We happened to run at my Oceanside target pace, and could have run way faster, so I'm very optimistic about next weekend's run split. The pace was #1 in the small dog division (among both the men's and women's divisions) and second in my actual AG.

I’m a C-L-Y-D-E-S-D-A-L-E! Many people in the sport know the division is there, but many of them think that it's a 'fat boys division.' So what constitutes a Clydesdale? Why even have this class?
