CB300 - Analysis #2 - Update

Right after I posted my second analysis below, the CB300 stats were updated.

Here's the latest summary of my suggested "Cumulative Run-Time" leader board:

Look at who's running seventh fastest overall, only 20 minutes behind Allen!... Stay tuned!

Love these analyses, Macgellan. This is one of my favourite aspects of following races, trying to figure out everyone's strategies and tactics.
CB300 is one of my favourite races to follow, therefore, because of the unique rules about mandatory rest. Allen did this last year, I remember - took longer rests at the beginning and "appearing" to be falling behind. In the end, he coasted right past the other teams that still had to make up some rest time. Love it!
Would love to see Allen and Aliy right up there at the top together! Meghan's doing fantastic as well.
Thanks for taking the time to crunch numbers for the fans, Macgellan. SP Kennel all the way!

Stay tuned indeed. Glad it's Sunday so I can sit obsessed with my laptop and no less than 4 open windows at any one time. Thanks for the coverage and analysis. Go SPK and dogs!

You are ther best, Macgellan!!!

Speaking of number crunching, in an effort to contribute to the effort, I just checked the temperature readings in Two Rivers as opposed to Glennallen:

Two Rivers = 35 below
Glennallen - 8 below.

Whatever happens in the race, the 36 4-legged SPK team members can brag " Aliy, Allen and Meghan took us to Florida for vacation where we trained..."

Mac, your number crunching is great. Helps us understand the race better. Run & rest is such an important strategy.
