On to happier subjects! This last weekend I went to the last two speed shows of the year for us locally. The first day was at the Stalwart Fair. This fair is an agricultural fair and is advertised as the Biggest little fair in Michigan. It is alot of fun! It's all about community!
The night before the speed show at the fair it poured, so there were mini lakes in the arena, so we dubbed it the mud runs! I don't have any pictures, but we had fun! I hadn't ran since June, so I was excited to see Corky enter the arena for warmups and want to take off running! He remembered! That's my boy! We took it easy, though, because of the mud. The person I did a training session with at the beginning of the year told me just to concentrate on beating OUR time each time, but because of the mud and the fact we hadn't ran in 3 months, I just wanted to get it right. We ran 40 seconds in barrels, which was 2 seconds higher than our last run, 40 seconds in poles, 17 seconds on down and back.
The next day my hubby got to go see me! He hasn't seen me since my practice session in May, so he was excited to see us running all the time! The arena was a little drier, so I felt more confident. We entered the arena for barrels, made a loop and off we went. We did 32 seconds and I was proud! Broke our record!
