Meet The Beavs
There was Trish, light and fast. A physical therapist and smart cookie, she gave me helpful career advice.
Then Susan, also speedy. Susan and I share similar hair and she announced she had finally figured hers out, then helped me figure mine out.
Sherri was absent due to injury, so we poured some out for her at the start of each day, and also at the champagne stash; hidden behind the same tree from the first Tour de Beavers.
Heidi spins a good yarn and even brought her knitting along. She told how she recently learned to pee off the bike, without stopping and without making a mess. True story.
Jennifer, young but so strong, and good to draft. I need to make her a buddy flap so I can follow her around Portland.
Michelle, steady atop her orange CoMotion, complete with couplings. She's a kitchen sink packer and the yin to my minimalist yang.
Linda led. Also on my Outback team, Linda was our head planner and champagne stasher. We'd be lost without her, quite literally.
The scent of a passing clover field in bloom reminds me of meeting MaryJean, several years ago now. I quizzed her the next day on this reminiscent scent and she knew the right answer right away.
We started out as friends and acquaintances and even strangers, but all ended up as fast friends.
