Season Ending.


Number 13 — The number I pinned on for the final race of the year. Huh. (it’s tradition to pin your number upside down if you get number 13): Last spring, I envisioned a promising potential breakout season. A season where I could earn a spot on a solid team for next year. At minimum […]
