Run The Year 2020

Didn’t make 2020 miles but I did alright. I was on track to hit 2020 right up until we were able to go back to work in May. Promised my body it wouldn’t have to walk 5 miles 6 days a week. Just get me through the intensity of 18 days of hard labor getting my clientele back on track.

Elliot Parkours too!

Elliot got mail!

It’s a Q! What a lovely entry! Elliot is darling and so happy to be working with you. What a sweetheart!
On the first broad jump, you could have put the jump part on the ground, since there’s no height requirement for broad jumps. It seemed like a pretty big effort for someone Elliot’s size, although he did it beautifully.
Thank you for the super measurement pics. They are so helpful.
The cert is attached and the ribbon will go out on Thursday.
Congratulations! Nice way to start the new year!

Kathi’s appropriate 2020 holiday gift!

Closed again… :-(

Team Spirit reopened, only to shut down again yesterday afternoon. Janey has been so conscientious, practicing due diligence. While I’d already chosen to #shelterinmytwoplaces, I’m sorry there’s a reason to close again. This virus has been so destructive, including to the economy. President-elect Biden was right when he stated, “you can’t fix the economy until you fix covid.” Just ask Janey. And her teachers.

Janey’s post…

Hi there,
Today we found out that we have had another student test positive for COVID. She was asymptomatic and with no known exposure, but got tested because she was planning on traveling to see her parents. She was here this week in two separate classes prior to her positive notification. Her instructors and classmates have been notified. With Nicole being on medical leave and now with these two instructors on two weeks’ quarantine, we have decided, sadly, to once again…close. This applies to all classes, privates, workshops, rentals, agility and nosework. This is effective immediately, and we will stay closed through the holidays and hope to reopen on January 1 or 2, 2021.
Please know that this decision was not made lightly because we all appreciate how important it is, especially now, to have time to train and play with our dogs. But because the virus is spreading so much right now and we have a student population that is quite vulnerable, we felt it would be best to play it very safe, and again, shut down. We realize that at some point, this constant closing/opening will become unworkable. Hopefully, in the next couple of weeks, we can figure out a way to navigate these crazy waters more easily. Have a safe and happy holiday season, everyone. I’ll post again when we know more about reopening.

3 Qs and new title for Tanner: ADP-L3 Regular Track

The judge said:
What a lovely team ! Tanner is such a wonderful parkour player. He clearly enjoys the sport. I’m also impressed with all the different behaviors he knows how to do. Good diversity, and even some advanced moves. Good job !As a judge, I want to tell you how much I appreciate the measurements. It certainly made my job so much easier – I didn’t have to guess at all. Thank-you.
