Not only was the training going poorly for the sled day
bit I lost all the members of my “Team Arizona” in a training mishap (see yesterday’s post). I’m a terrier and not a quitter but the odds were against Team Arizona. The word has spread like my team members on the cactus and I’m getting no new blood. The only one left is Kaci who missed the accident because she was chasing a rabbit (you can tell she was extremely dedicated). I decided to call in an expert-Lilly the greayhound.
Lilly is the only dog I know that’s had experience with high-level sports. She was a pro racer and never won a race but that’s more expertise than I have. Lilly listened and advised Kaci and me to sit down. OK-we sorta did
Lilly said that we didn’t have the proper equipment, expertise or backing and that we shouldn’t consider moving forward. She pointed out that I can’t do justice to two events at the same time. My goal is to go to Coney Island on July 4th and win the competitive eating contest. The training methods for these events are vastly different. So I had a choice-food or snowless sledding. Nothing gets in the way of my food so I’m dropping the sledding.
Instead of being a participant, I’m going to earn some coin for my trip to Brooklyn with a concession stand. Please patronize my eaterie so I can realize my dream of eating with the big boys.
