Here is a little bit about each member of the Team Running Husky.
Luna is a Siberian Husky who loves to run. She is our first dog, and the reason why we started canicross in the first place. We were looking for a dog who would be following us in our outdoor activities. We loved hiking and running, so we decided a husky would be the perfect breed for us. We fell in love with Luna’s marking, her little eyebrows and her party eye. That was even before we knew she would be an amazing running dog. Her first Christmas gift was the canicross equipment, as we were eager to start as soon as we could! Luna loves to go for a run with her dad. She is a daddy’s girl, and part of it is because of the relationship they developed with canicross. She has great potential that we are just starting to explore!
Bolt is the new baby of the family. With our growing love for the dog sports, it was frustrating to have only one dog as we could just have one person running or racing and the other one felt left apart. So we decided to have a second dog so we could each run with our own dog! For Bolt we were looking for a kennel that had running dogs, so he can have that in his blood. Bolt’s parents are doing sledding for fun in the winter, they don’t compete but he has a bit of running in his blood. Bolt was the most adventurous of the litter, which made us fall in love with him. We picked him up in August 2018 and we are living the joy of having two tornados at home since. We are introducing him to the canicross world very early, by taking him on race site and to our trainings. We can’t wait for him to be old enough to start running as well!
JC is the runner of the family. He always loves to run and is a competitor who always wants to improve and get better. He was a good runner before. But canicross is actually much different than just running. So he started to train on trail running and train for speed as well, because canicross is much much faster! He loves unconditionally our two little champions.
Then there is me! The person behind this blog, the one behind the social media, the coach of the team. Unfortunately I injured my knee in the early stages of Luna starting to run, which explains why JC has taken the lead on Luna’s training. I am now feeling better, but I will focus on bikejoring to preserve my knee. But I am also an important part of the team, as the coach. What started as a joke is now my role in the team. I look at all our trainings and give an outside view on the training, I organize our races, find races and book hotels, and I interact a lot on social media to learn new stuff that I then tell JC about.
