Dottie Variable Surface Training

Not a perfect track, but I suppose that is how we learn.  The whole track is not filmed, just the section between 2 articles.  She had a lot of trouble going through the bare patch, but eventually got it, and finished correctly.  Yes, our article indications are slow and sloppy, but that will be something to work on separately.

(Note that "variable surface" means different surfaces, not not necessarily "hard surface."  I did have the 1 section of hard pack dirt, but we are still working on asphalt and concrete, so we aren't ready to incorperate that into a variable surface track yet.My surfaces for this track were crab grass, deep grass, hard dirt, back to grass, then less hard dirt with some deadish cover.)
