My hobbies and interests:
Finishing my basement and enjoying my kids
I’m riding 4:
My grandfather, Captain William Short, who had a contagious laugh. He died from metastatic melanoma when I was in high school. He taught me to strive for greater things.
I’m also riding for my sister, who was diagnosed with 3A lung cancer when she was only 42 years old. After gallantly fighting through surgery and chemo, she was starting to return to normalcy when a blood clot from the lung resection caused a massive heart attack. Through the herculean efforts of many her life was saved, but substantial brain damage leaves her in a state equivalent to advanced Alzheimer’s.
My riding mantra:
My pain is only temporary!
