Before we began, he asked who raced that weekend and what their times were. There was a lull in the conversation and I blurted out “I DIDN’T […]

January Goal Review

It is hard to believe that we have already headed into February. January has been a bit of a whirl wind, but if it is any indicator of how the rest of 2014 is going to go, I am in for a fabulous year! Despite being a busy month, I was able to tackle a […]
