Inspirational and Motivational

Thank you to Lee Craigie, cyclist extraordinaire, who had us spellbound by her modestly-presented,  courageous adventures this afternoon. In two weeks she flies to Canada to embark on a 3000 mile unsupported ride to Mexico.  Listening to Lee was really moving and reminded me of how happy cycling makes me.

I’m hoping that all our Crown families will join me in trying to match Lee’s distance between us for the duration of her cycle- around a month.

More details to follow as Lee and I hurriedly try to make plans to record our support of her challenge. We are hoping there will be a digital solution to recording our efforts to support Lee.

Our Sparkly Strictly Star!

Here are Miss Rae and her Friday night  dancing team. We had an amazing preview on Wednesday – but no costume sneak previews allowed on blog-and wish her every success for Friday night!
