I'm behind! Mostly because I've been having too much damn fun!
life is good. Really good.
I spent a week in Portland surrounded by my favorite friends and disc golf courses and some pretty cold weather. I think I somehow managed to bring the sun with me from Arizona though! It only rained the night I got in, then blue skies the rest of my trip. I was able to play a handful of Portland favorites:
All of which I played pretty poorly I might add but I am still recovering from my back injury. It's getting better slowly...and thanks again to everyone who has reached out, thank you for caring!!! :) I'll likely have a few weeks of "rehab" before I'm back to my normal self. This one really did a number on me but I'm determined to get back to healthy as quickly as possible.
My Thanksgiving, although completely unorthodox was pretty perfect. I played a round of golf in the morning with great people, then hung out at my friend Mat's house by myself, re-watching about 20 disc golf videos from past tournaments. Specifically 2014 Disc Golf Pro Worlds - Portland - the footage that changed my life. I was watching Ohn Scoggins make every. single. putt. and remembered I drive through Los Angeles (where she lives) to get back to Tucson so I shot her a message to play a round. It didn't hit me until later, but she's a huge part of why I decided to take this living-for-disc-golf path, only 1.5 years ago, and now I'm playing casual rounds with her in California. I can't tell ya'll how happy that makes me. Anyhow, later Thanksgiving evening, my good friends brought me turkey and a bunch of pie and we watched MORE disc golf videos together and it was completely perfect. Thanksgiving successfully spent with family.
I left a little early from Portland and spent a few more days in California on the way back home. Also... Perfect. The weather is stellar, the people are amazing and the courses are a blast. I'm playing with some new Discmania frisbees from Eric and I'm REALLY impressed. I haven't dabbled a whole lot outside of Innova and a few latitude discs but I'm liking what I'm seeing so far. I got to play the world's first permanent course Oak grove in Pasadena, CA with Ohn , Erin White, Jamie Hadley (see photo and video) and a really cool guy I forget the name of. It was such a fun crew to play with. Also, after sunset, I got to play a completely lit 18-hole disc golf/ball golf course near Los Angeles. We need one of those everywhere for winter golf!
I am back home now grinding away on charity and Whale Sacs items that have fallen behind in the last two weeks. But speaking of both, Women's Disc Golf Outreach AND Whale Sacs were featured on the PDGA women's Facebook page last week! They were generous enough to do a fundraiser for WDGO, and then featured Whale Sacs for their "by women for women" disc golf companies segment.
Everything else is just as good as it has been not a lot else to update but it sure has been a fun two weeks fun and much needed.
**Side note. I wrote this yesterday while in Tucson, but somehow found myself in San Diego for a day. My life is crazy and I like it that way.
