He freakin loves climbing on top of things and running through tunnels so I always wanted to get him into agility. Sadly I had never been able to find any classes in this area. Late fall of last year I found a contact list of agility people and sent out a bunch of emails. I got several responses but they were all an hour + away. I finally decided my want to do at least one class with him was greater than my un-want to drive that far; so, I commited to a class that's about an hour away from my work and a little more than an hour away from our house. It's in NY but very close to the MA border.
I have signed us up for "part 2" class which starts tonight. I am kind of dreading the drive but I'll be glad I went. River does really well with all the agility stuff. If we practiced enough it's possible I could compete with him. I'd be really interested in doing that but I have no where close that I could practice and I highly doubt he could compete without multiple practices every week. I'm excited to see how this next class goes.
On the running front, I didn't end up going out last night. I'm still thinking about upping the frequency but I guess I'm not ready just yet. Tonight will be day 1 of week 3 and I think I've decided to give it a try. If the 3 mins is too much to take then I'll just do another week 2. Oy, finish work, 2+ hours of driving, 1 hour of agiliy class, 45 mins or so of running/stretching... apparently I'm not going to get to eat dinner today!
