blue squirrel

after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

ok, so i don't usually post about my personal life, cause my posts are boring enough for most, you don't need to be subjected to my even more boring life, design, ride, design, ride, eat, design, ride, you get the picture. but today there was an incredibly moving and momentous event, my little berlin [all killa non filla] walked on her own for the first time in 3 months, albeit like a tourist at oktoberfest. a little history on the situation, she had surgery for a spinal disk that was putting pressure on her spine, and thus her back half, including her back legs were paralyzed, all of this happened while i was on vacation with my beautiful fiancé in holland / sweden. josephine has been taking such good care of my lil' killa since our return, and today it paid off. it really brought me to tears, it was like a dream, as if i finally woke up from the nightmare of the past 3 months. it broke our hearts to see her paralyzed, as before she was a very active lean mean killing machine. she could catch birds in mid-flight, chase squirrels up trees, dismember mice in a split second and pounce on crickets and spiders as if they were standing still. i hope this is the big break through we have all been hoping for. i have spent my new record grouppo savings on her surgery [$$$] and acupuncture, and i would do it again at the drop of a dime. all i can say is that all of the squirrels that have been teasing her [not me, i only tease tim], better watch out, cause the killa from brandenburg is back and ready to rumble.
