What's happened since last blog? I raced! First time in over a year. Conditions were not ideal (windy) and neither was the time, but it was a reminder that at this point, just getting out there is an achievement, and progress. Plus, I got to hang out with 8 team members at a cafe after the event (including Kerri Gallagher!). They were the best cheer squad during the race. And, a great reminder that things don't have to be perfect to enjoy the process and friends that come with racing.
As a kid I was like a real life Pippy Longstocking: independent, fearless, messy. I dressed in black leggings and an oversized tshirt with my school mascot on it almost every day, and didn’t give a shit. Clothing was nothing more than a way to cover my body and I had no interest in dressing to impress. My body was a tool for action and exploring my limits, and I didn’t understand how clothing could amplify it’s potential.
