If the seemingly chronic spate of recent world/state/regional/local news this past winter/spring/summer has gotten you down?

Here is sweat-based hope from a young, resilient bright Light;  Dewachen Ilg (aka; Dewa – her name is Tibetan for “Golden Light Of Bliss”).  Age 10.

With a veritable landslide of recent mountain running race results from Dewa – daughter of Durango’s questionable celebrity

mountain athlete/coach/author/yoga teacher; steve ilg and her triple-threat movie/tv/stage actress mother, Joy Kilpatrick?

Well, Dewachen is inspiring thousands already by her wholistic outdoor and

indoor accomplishments.  Dewa set a new 12-under Course Record at the Kendall Mountain Run (July 14th) 

for both male and female and finished 2nd in the 20-under Age Group and was the youngest finisher ever

in the history of the race.  Prior to that,  Dewa won the 12-under Blue Ribbon 5k in

Silverton and also won the 12-under in the 5k at the notoriously difficult Hardscrabble Race in Westcliffe, CO on

June 2nd.   On the indoor side of things?  Dewa will be in a leading role in THE BOOK OF YOU on August 4th at Durango Arts Center after

a summer of assistant teaching her mom’s theatre camp.  Dewa and her parents will soon be teaching and inspiring other 8-12 year olds in their final

Wholistic Fitness® Kids Camp from August 6-9.  For more info on that camp,
