A Loco nailed it failed it (relay 2021)

I’ve been hooked on the Loco management races from the first race I ever did with them in 2018. They  consistently put on incredibly fun, affordable races that are also deceptively challenging. I feel so lucky that most of their races are less than 2 hours from my house. The races have smaller numbers of […] more

Race report: “If you don’t like the weather, just wait”

I guess I could have called this “Little Loco Solo Relay 2021.” But that title is so boring. Unlike the weather on Saturday. First, a reminder of how we got here. To this very moment I don’t know why I started the race optimistic that it was going to go well. My longest recent long run […] more

The need to not be needed

ER What to Expect Part 3

Something I’m new at but quickly starting to recognize some patterns in. I’m realizing these posts aren’t going to be that simple. When I go to write about some of the items […] more

ER What to Expect Part 2

If you are just joining us, read the first part for explanations & disclaimers, important & not-so-important notes, and the philosophy of this post (because if you don’t, and you troll this post, don’t come whining to me when I don’t approve your comment.) Last time we covered exotics that are probably going to die, exotics […] more

What to expect when…you have to go to the vet ER

Growing up the thought of taking an animal to an ER was unfathomable. The first and only time I’ve had to take an animal to the ER was when I was an adult. Tess got attacked by another household dog as a puppy and her face and mouth was bleeding. She was screaming, I was […] more
