There were a lot of delays the morning of the race. Sadly there was a fatality in one of the higher speed classes. The weather was a bit iffy as well. Todd drove the course perfectly and we worked well as a team adjusting meeting our time targets. By my stopwatch our finishing time was 51.25.82 (51 minutes, 25 seconds and 82 milliseconds) and our goal time was 51.25.7. I thought that was pretty darn good but I had no concept of how close other teams usually get.
Off we went to the awards banquet in Las Vegas. And drum roll....
Me and my first place navigator plate!
My dad won his class too, along with many others on our team. For the first time ever the team won first place as well – which is awesome!
The next day Todd treated me to some horse shopping at WC Equestrian. It’s a huge store with some great sale items and also some higher end stuff. I got a winter blanket for Henry (50% off booyah), a groovy new mane comb, a cute key chain and t-shirt.
I’m happy to be home and back into my routine (because I am a giant square).
