Delta-one-one

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 I promised Khaleesi to adjust the competition schedule this year to reflect her request for less gnarly grueling rocky trails. As I am a woman of my word I did not enter the Beast of the East this year as a competitor. However I have grown to love my Old Dominion […]

Gifts [edited]

Monday, June 12, 2017 One thing I love is finding ways everything is a gift- even the things you didn’t think you wanted. If you change perspective and turn them around enough you can see the beauty- but sometimes it takes a little squinting through tears! I am back from the OD safely and have […]

Love letter to my crew:

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 5:30am start on Saturday means an early morning- in fact 5:30 am start means I’m on my horse by 5:15 (ideally but it hardly ever works that way for me) so probably getting up by 4am to make sure we are adequately dosed with coffee. As for Khaleesi, I will offer […]

Dragonfly in the sun… you know what I mean..
