We huddled around the laptop in bed this morning, as we have done so many times before. Watched Fabian ride away this morning, as he has done so many times before. While we watched, I wondered how the women’s race was shaking out and when or if there would ever be a day when I [...]

I was Co-President of Seattle University’s Triangle Club at that time. I remember lobbying so hard and sending so many emails and having so many [...]
