Monday So Soon Already?

The weekends fly by far too quickly around here. Between a long ride, a long run and an all day agility trial I am sapped!

I had a great hot windy ride in the hills. I haven’t done the Hicks-Shannon-Kennedy climb in roughly 2 years (how does time fly so quickly?) and I’d forgotten the long stretch at a 13% grade.

Heading out to the hills with Jeff and Nigel

Most of my views were like this, or of just road that went straight up

Max had to sit out the CPE trial this weekend until he sees his chiropractor again Wednesday but I hope he will get the green light for the show we are entered in next week. Stanley, however, had a blast at his first CPE trial and kicked some butt! Six 1st places, three 2nd places, and one 3rd place. He finished all of his Level 1 titles – CL1-R, CL1-H, CL1-S and CL1-F – but we’ll just put a CL1 at the end of his name to signify that he’s earned them all.

Titles aside, I'm just pleased with the the relationship I'm seeing develop with Stan and how our teamwork is coming along. The 10 runs this weekend gave us ample opportunity to practice what he needs to be ready for the ring and to work on areas that needed improvement. Together I would say we are coming along! I'm so proud of my baby boy!

I thought maybe I’d go see a movie tonight but…I think I’ll sit here with my feet up, drink beer, eat pie and watch TV. That’s about all I’m capable of at this point.
