Are you a masters racer? Have you been the ONLY woman in a local race? Have you been 10 years older than any other woman on a sports team? Do you check your lipstick before the start? Yes? This is for you! Masters are tough ladies for whom sports aren’t a fad. Being competitive and active aren’t things left behind at college graduation. Career, family, life - don’t impede your dedication. You’re willing to cross barriers.

People want to come to my party!

Just started last week and already have some great sponsors for the raffle. team estrogen is giving this for the raffle. Sweet! It's gonna start some cat fights for sure. http://www.teamestrogen.com/prodTK_1111.html

Can't believe the response I'm getting from women around town - everyone I mention it to gets excited and wants to help. Miss Mary Perez has jumped in with a ton of connections/advice/help. Jenny Petter, an amazing local graphic artist, came up with some hilarious and cool t-shirt ideas. (still super secret). One local cxer decided to sign up for nationals bc she wants to come to the party!

What's on so far? Prizes, appetizers, brownies, cookies...and a venue with a christmas tree. In the heart of Bend's cool downtown. Check out the Rambler Room (for hikers?): http://www.mcmenamins.com/index.php?loc=98&id=767

Thanks a ton to Visit Bend for arranging the food and room. Doug LaPlaca and crew Laurel Brauns are super helpful and working hard to put on a super fun weekend.
