This past weekend was one of the busiest of my life. I knew when I scheduled two big events back to back it was going to be a little rough. At the end of it, I was sleep deprived and exhausted, but it was totally worth it.
Part I: Saturday
At 6:30am Saturday morning I was on the road on my way to Westminster, MD. Not for a bike ride this time but for an agility trial. In my very first post, I mentioned that I do agility training with my dogs. For those unfamiliar, dog agility is where you train your dog to perform certain obstacles (jumps, tunnels, stuff to climb over, etc) and the purpose is to run your dog through basically an obstacle course as fast as you can go without making mistakes. Each course has different challenges, and on Saturday I ran a total of eight courses with Rugby and Juno.
At over eight years old, Rugby still has some serious spring:
As he's matured with age, Rugby is less of a clown at agility trials, and while he certainly still spaces out and wanders away, sometimes he puts it all together really well and we had 3 successful runs of 5 this weekend.
It was an exhausting day. I didn't get home until after 8pm and barely had enough time to pack some things and try to get to sleep before the alarm went off at 4:30am.
Part II: Sunday
On Sunday morning, I left the house even earlier than on Saturday, this time for the Iron Girl triathlon. By 6am I was setting up my transition area in some light rain, and by 7:30am, I was in the water about to start the race. I'm somewhere out in this big pack of swimmers.
Where's the knitting? But what about knitting?! No worries, there was knitting--a decent amount actually (there's a lot of waiting around at dog trial), but I'm saving that for next post. Psst....Goodale is finished.
