Goshawk challenge, from a ladie’s perspective

  Bruce must have had a quiet traumatic experience. Mine was overall positive but I was close to giving up. People who came to the course at Tarmac and Trail would know what kind of cough I am fighting with at the moment. Perhaps it would have been wiser to stay in bed to get […]
