Trails, Bullets and Endurance

Posted on February 27, 2011 at 11:09am 1 Comment

I have been diligent in my quest for fitness in preparation for the 2011 XP adventure. I have been hiking 3 mornings a week and training 2 days a week at the gym. The trail work is my aerobics. What a wonderful way to sweat! My neighbors have an excellent trail through the coastal sage with a short warm up followed by 2 big, steep hills then another longer hill that brings you to views of La Jolla to the south and Catalina Island to the west. The hike is about 3 miles long and takes about 45…

Equine Affair Hangover

February 5, 2011

Yesterday I was a woman on a mission. Up, showered, dressed and out the door at 7 am with my neighbor and fellow endurance addict, Diane. We were both women on a mission – get to the Equine Affaire in Pomona California and soak in all we could. This broad brush included watching giants such as Craig Cameron’s Extreme Cowboy Race, listening to a lecture from a local ferrier, getting a Centered Riding lesson from Becky Hart, meeting up with old friends and…

Look Ma, No Barn!

Posted on February 2, 2011 at 1:47pm 0 Comments

After months of research and hand ringing, the old leaky barn is gone and the new one is starting to take shape. Today a crane operator came over and craned the beams up onto the metal columns. Now they are adding the final bolts and tomorrow the rafters will be added. In no time (as in construction time..different from regular time) the new roof will be up and my new barn will be finished!

Warner Springs 2011, the Last Loop

Posted on January 15, 2011 at 6:47pm 1 Comment

A week ago today I was riding my first 50 mile endurance ride in over 2 years. It went well! Jazzi passed the test and we finished on time, in good health no issues…well, maybe a few small ones, but we did good. I am so happy!

We walked a lot of the ride which was fine until the last loop when we found ourselves out in the deepening dusk, alone. I made a wrong right turn were the cookie stop had been. As I was pondering my new move, my phone rang and it was Diane, back in camp…

New Year's Eve day

Posted on December 31, 2010 at 12:48pm 0 Comments

December 31, 2010

Today is New Year’s Eve and I am waiting for the first load of laundry to go into the dryer so I can start the second load and get on my Jazzi. It is cold today for southern California (in the 50's) and I have my new Iridion 3 season Polartech boot cut riding tights on! They are warm and comfy and I look forward to seeing how they feel in the saddle. I also have to test out my rain chaps from Muddy Creek, but need to find a belt first. Thank you Santa!!!

Next week I… Continue
