"Never trust Morag when she says the route is no more than 2 miles" said Laura
Sadly, you all now know that when I say the run will be about 2 miles I am in fact lying.
Sorry. Sort of.
But everyone did so very well, and I knew you could all run further than you thought…
I’m not sorry at all – you were amazing!
The Introductory and Improvers workshops on Saturday were fantastic fun to run, and the feedback has been pretty awesome too.
When I clicked the button to book myself a slot on the beginners canicross course with Well Connected Canine…I was excited and nervous all at once. From the moment I walked through the door Morag and Laura both put me at ease, they were so supportive I knew I had done the right thing. The workshop was so well run, from fitting the humans with belts and the dogs with harnesses, all carefully fitted to make sure they wouldn't cause any discomfort. Once we were all kitted up we were off...for want was supposed to be 2 miles! 3.5 miles later and I had done it! I had done what I had been dreading with the most amazing support and encouragement from the team.
I loved it, already signed up for improvers and my bank balance has decreased significantly after buying kit!
Thank you Morag for a great afternoon. Learnt loads and have already ordered Ronnie a new harness. It was great meeting everybody, looking forward to seeing you all again in Dalby.
So nice to run with people who are more than happy to just go with what their dog wants.
Next workshops on Sunday 25th February (Wigginton)
If you have already attended an Improver session you can skip the kit checking but we promise to challenge you and your dog with new skills and routes!
