Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – November 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – November 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, Humans. I recall two years ago, when I wrote one of my columns about the values of what it took to achieve my black belt in karate at age 12.  I also remember the photo that went along with the column.  It was of Rudy Waller (my friend, trainer, and Pro SX Racer) and myself.  Little did

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – October 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – October 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, Humans. Originally, this column was headed in a totally different direction.  With the latest news of Reece Rendall’s passing, I knew I had to make a few adjustments.  I can’t even imagine what this is like for Jen, Thomas, and Karen. Two kids losing their Dad and a wife losing her husband.  You all are in my

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | September 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | September 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, humans. I’m sitting down typing this 4 hours post knee surgery. When inspiration calls I always pick up! So helloooo and welcome to September’s column! I feel that every personal challenge that I’ve faced and overcome along with every race/event that I’ve entered has prepared me for this moment, the “rebuild of my left knee.” I share

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | August 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | August 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, Humans.  Remember the folktale we all most likely heard as children, The Tortoise and the Hare?  If for some reason you haven’t read it, there’s no need to even have a library card or go to a bookstore, just punch the title in on Google and…voila!  I had quite the epiphany on how relative and applicable the

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – July 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – July 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, Humans!  This column is going to be short and sweet like a pack of fruit-flavored Mentos!  This month I’ve been overwhelmed with the feeling of gratitude and now have a new understanding of what the word “community” actually means. Earlier this month, I spent some time in Peru with 23 strangers.  Nervous?  Of course. But I had

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | June 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | June 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings Humans,  It’s been about two weeks since I’ve been off the crutches.  Never did I ever think I would be afraid to walk again. Seriously, who would’ve thought I’d experience the emotions of fear, anxiety, and hesitancy.  For real, I’ve been putting one foot in front of the other since I was one!  I think I would

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, Humans!  How awesome was the first round of the Motocross Nationals at Fox Raceway!  So cool to see Ryan Dungey giving it another go after 5 years of retirement and Antonio Cairoli coming to America to race.  It was like a homecoming and reunion race combined.  It’s going to be an exciting season for sure!  Well, we are more than

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – April 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – April 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, Humans.  About 10 years ago I used to attend a Bikram Yoga studio quite frequently. The lady who owned the studio, Helena, is an incredible person – a heart of gold and a kind soul.  Her father, Sonny, taught classes at the studio as well.  I loved taking his classes and appreciated the wisdom and comic relief

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | March 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | March 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, Humans!  Inspired by a training session from the other night, allow me to introduce two of my lil homies; Kai McCullough and Ryder Robertson.  I’ve worked with both of these boys for about two years.  When it comes to personalities, they are two polar opposites.  Kai is so high strung, he gives me a run for my

Off the Cuff | Jacqueline Ross – February

Off the Cuff | Jacqueline Ross – February By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, humans!  As Zora Hurston says, “There are years that ask questions and years that answer.” Just when I think I have a semi-understanding of the current season that I am in, the universe sends another tribulation.  I wouldn’t expect anything less! As I sit here and type this, my knee is elevated and set up on a chair
