Sasha the Siberian bitch and I joined Ian, Chuck, Jim, Blaine, and Chuck's friend Jack May for the TMRTNRATB. Great run. We implemented all three sprints, which are in the 300-400 meter range so a little longer than sprints. Ian, I think won the first one. The second one included much of the C loop. Sasha and I started early and took a big lead but Sasha slowed, allowing everyone to pass by. Sasha got excited by everyone in front of us and took off again but I was spent and couldn't catch Ian and Jack. I think Jack may have taken this one. Chuck just kept the high pace for the rest of the run and Jack was on his tail for much of it. So I guess Chuck officially won the last sprint (ending at the cars). Ian and I started to pick up the pace somewhere on the dirt road and with about 50m left caught Jack. Chuck had finished showering by the time Ian crossed the line for 2nd, with Jack, Sasha and I sticking our chests or snouts out for third.
