I remember my first agility class with Dena. The class started early in the morning and it was a little cool when we left the house, so I wore jeans. It was a small class, only 3 dogs, so by the time I finished an exercise and got to the end of the line it was time to go again. After running my butt off for an hour with hardly any breaks I was panting, my face was bright red, I was pouring sweat, and I thought I was going to die, lol. After that I vowed that no matter what the weather was I'd be wearing shorts to class. And I did - all the way into November!
The second to last week I tripped over a tunnel support because I was watching my dog and not where I was going, and I fell and broke my shoulder. That was halfway through the class - Tom was there taking pictures and there's one with me having just gotten up off the ground cradling my arm that was time stamped at almost exactly the mid-point, so I knew exactly when it happened. I didn't know it was broken at the time but it hurt like heck, so I could only handle her on my left rather than on both sides since I could hardly move my right arm. I showed up the following week in a sling and finished the class.
