The countdown

August 24th, 2005—Dan’s Birthday!!
Calgary, AB—13 days until TAKEOFF

Well hello there and welcome to my blog. This site is designed to help my Mom keep track of me while I’m off gallivanting the world if you're looking for a little Jenny "extra" check out my new website at

First item on the agenda: Happy Birthday to you Dan! I would say just how old you are—but it’s probably best if I don’t! The weather is incredibly icky out in Calgary—not terribly enjoyable—and definitely not conducive to riding my bicycle…:( It’s warmed up to 9 degrees by 2:38 pm...but yes, I am still inside. Think I might cozy up by the fire with my book The Fiery Cross (it’s a goody—definitely on my list of recommendations!)

For everyone’s entertainment, I have included a picture from my archives (been cleaning out the room at Mom’s house) and it’s dedicated to Dan as it’s his birthday. I believe this is after a Tuesday night crit when I was 15— I was super proud that I had completed 5 laps with the group at 36km/h.
