A spirit of friendly good-fellowship can be found among many Distance Derby riders. New friendships have been formed, neighbors riding with neighbors, friends reuniting in the quest for more miles and good will across state lines all across the country. Pretty cool, don’t you think? (Hang in there, Alaska!)
I love that as hard as those at the top are riding, that so many of you have found a “pocket” for your own competition. Janette of Team Kimes has the same folks on her watch list as I have on mine, including herself. And I know quite a few that are vying for that 31st spot on the top Leader Board, which by the way is divided in two only because of my technical difficulties in making the screen shot fit in one picture. That is my dirty little secret! Who’d of thought it would be a motivator.
Special call-out to Terri of Team MacKeogh whose horse, Royal, was injured after riding the other day but luckily not as serious as it could have been. He’ll be back racking up those miles in no time!
