So It Begins

Last night I thought to myself "today is a good day to start training." Then my alarm started beeping and I said to myself "It sure is early!" As I started dressing our puppy looked up from her pillow and had a look on her face that said" You want me to do what? At this Hour?" After fumbling with the front door lock trying to be quiet so we wouldn't wake up the rest of the family we started. At first I thought to myself "This isn't so bad" then we made the first turn up a nice gentle rise, up what felt like a Texas version of Mt. Everest. After wheezing and hacking for what felt like an hour we started our return trip back to the house. I thought to myself " I sure hope my family hears the dog barking trying to get their attention" as I sit on the side of the road trying to make it the rest of the way back to the house. All kidding aside it was an interesting start, I sure need more roadwork! I want to wish the rest of the team the best of luck as each of you start on your own little roads of discovery!
