This morning I successfully watched my first uploaded video, and now I am going to try to embed it right here:
Michele and Maxie,
XJ, Saturday Oct. 23, 2010, Kiln, MS
Score: 100, 2nd Place, 2nd leg
SCT 46 sec, our time: 46.95 seconds (the visit with the photographer cost us 7 seconds).
A slow, wabbly run, but we made it.
Okay, so it embedded and centered. Great! Now I can post detailed comments about my runs while they are still fresh in my mind. Only thing is, I can't seem to size the video any larger or smaller. Humm! Still, pretty cool.
So in my next post I will embed my "Worst Run Ever" to date, and comment on it. It's pretty sad, but we haven't had any brilliant runs yet, so I'll have to wait to post one of those.
I am visualizing us running perfectly together, though -- a correographed ballet, perfectly timed, no wabbles, lots of speed and precision, no confusion such as "where the hell do I go next?", or "why did Maxie spin or run way out there and how do I get him back?", or "I'm so exhausted, please don't let me trip over myself or my dog and make a total fool of myself!"
It's harder than it looks, folks, so the bad runs (even if they are Q's) are, so far, far more commonplace than the wonderful ones. I intend for that to change.
