Gunnison Chica's

I was snowshoe running at Heartmans this morning and thinking. I'm writing an article for the Gunnison trails website on training at Hartmans.. Its going to be easy! Its our church.

It got me thinking about some of the women in our Valley and appreciatively inspired.

Funnily when Brian came home from Hartman's he was telling me about who re ran into today. Our friends Gale , Greg, Carol, Bike shop owner Ricky G and Kathy G and A woman in windproof pants, on old skate boots and older fisher skis hammering up the main street hill... when he finally caught up he realised and gave Susan Demattei a huge fright. Sue skied with for the rest of the loop.

Local Yokels:

Sara ski's

Jari Kirkland- Rockstar.
Keri Nelson. Snowshoe National Champion.

Dussaultskis, Grandma Quinn, Carol.

Mama Dussaultskis. 8 x national XC ski champ/2006 Olympian Rebecca.

Who inspires you?

That is awesome to have so many strong women in your area. Every winter I realize how many strong women are hidden in the woodwork, so to speak. I head out on skis and see all these fabulous women out there working it. It never ceases to amaze me.

One of my favorite quotes:
I want to be an outrageous old woman who never gets called old lady. I want to get leaner and meaner, sharp-edged and earth-colored til I fade away from pure joy!

Know too that you surely top those women's lists of inspirational athletes.
