Team 2 - Awesome Haily*
This is Haily’s and my second year participating in the Distance Derby. Last year was an awesome year for us (assuming Haily’s agrees). I may not have reached my distance goal of 750 miles but I did reach my first and second goal for the year. I rode at 7 new places including a trip out to Colorado to the Rocky Mountain National Park. And my first and most important goal was to get Haily and I to a point we had enough confidence in each other to ride ANYWHERE alone. We accomplished this one in spades. We even came across a bear in CO and WE handled it all alone.
This year my miles goal is going to be 1000 miles; since I finally got a saddle that is fitting I think this goal is achievable. I have 680 miles in competitive rides planned. Unfortunately my eyes are always way bigger then my pocket book so I am not sure I will actually be able to afford 17 Endurance/ MOTDRA CTR rides this year. But I do have 3 different friends that want to trailer pool so that will help the fuel costs.
I look at my goals this way: I shoot for the moon if I do not make it, at least I am up with the stars J
