It is great to hear the encouragement!! thank you...
I just recently hooked up with a young rider(cute boy!) that I am going to start training with. I figure it is going to take a lot of work, might as well have some one to flirt with and a nice set of abs to distract me on occasion! It can't be all work. Plus, he is so young, he is out of my age range, so it will be all about the riding;-) We are both very motivated and driven, so I think it is going to be helpful in getting us both towards our goals.
Who knows if I will make it, but I am going to do everything in my power to get myself there.
Thanks again for the support. It is really great to hear it.
