Unlike the course I set up Friday, this one is much more wide open and requires the handler (me) to cover a lot more ground to get the job done. The first time through, when I got to #23, I lost presence of mind and re-ran 5-10 before realizing I had messed up. So much for not taxing the little gray cells, n'est pas?
I attempted to correct my mistake after taking a rest, and then Belle started doing all sorts of squirrely things on the course. It was a truly humbling experience.
This morning we went out and ran it once. We did pretty well except after tunnel #10 Belle ran to where the toys are kept instead of continuing on course. I got her back and we finished, but I was gasping for breath : (

I went out this evening to run the second course and Ed videoed for me. Belle ran much better. Unfortunately, I was completely winded by the time we hit obstacle #29 and unable to finish. Here's the video:
