A lot has happened since my last blog. It's been too long since my last post. I've had so much great things to write about, but I just haven't had the energy to put words down until now. I will start with the bad, and then get to the good.
First off, I lost my best friend, Kelly Johnson, in a tragic racing incident at Portland International Raceway in May. Kelly has been my best friend for over 9 years, and she had the brightest personality you'd ever come across. I got her into road racing, and we've always parked next to each other at the races since she began. She was a very talented racer, who won multiple Oregon Motorcycle Road Racing Association championships and held class track records. Kelly was a very well rounded human, who touched everyone who was lucky enough to be in her presence. I grew up with her, and we took on the world together. I loved her very much, we had the rarest friendship together. My life will never be the same without her, and I will miss her dearly.
