The 2015 New Year begins with the tenth annual, Werner Zwahlen Memorial Race, hosted by the Loon Race Team, at Loon Mountain, NH.
I remember the first Werner Zwahlen Memorial Race, held in 2004. My sister and I spent the day beside the still waters of a sun-drenched pond tucked into the rolling fields of the French countryside and enclosed in the grounds of a French Chateau, a gift given to me as a refuge and repose. Blessed to have my sister by my side… always a strong support. Together with God’s care, we thought about Werner’s coaches, the young racers and their families involved in their first tribute to Werner’s three-year run against esophageal cancer.
I smile when I think about the young racers testing their mettle on the race course on Upper Rumrunner and Coolidge.
