As some of you probably already know, I spent the month of July in Northern California racing and trying to find a job. Well, I had some success racing and in the job hunt. The competition was as everyone told me it would be....very tough. It made me want to come to NorCal as fast as I could. I know that this area could really challenge me the way I think I need, in both my racing and in my educational and career pursuits. There are a lot of job opportunities and things are looking positive in that direction. On an oppositely disappointing note, my personal life sort of fell apart while I was out there.... Bob and I have broken up; it just didn't work out, but I will always be grateful that he was in my life. I'm really excited about the future and I appreciate all of your support during this very difficult month or so. The pictures below are of the last race I did - which was in Albany (north of Berkeley). I'm in the red, white and green outfit with the white helmet - in case you can't pick me out.
