No one works harder, or gives it more thought, than my beloved Kim Donlon and her determined little SR Dixie Chex. Despite some struggles in the WSVRHA finals, they made their long trip well worth the time. The morning after our return, I sat down with Kim and found myself learning intensely, as a person, a competitor, a coach. Kim has had real success this year, especially at the Carmel Valley GSVRHA show. But when she didn’t have the same success at the finals, she turned it all into a real learning experience, even as part of her spiritual journey. If we could all be so graceful and gracious.
