I have also always loved sports. Through the years I have dabbled in many types of fitness – running, aerobic and step classes, spin classes, lifting weights. You name it, I’ve tried it.
In my late twenties, I was introduced to bicycle racing. I had always loved riding my bicycle, but never considered racing one. As soon as I saw this was something people actually did, I had to try it.
Sixteen years of competitive racing and 3 National Championship wins later, I co-founded, ran and coached a youth development cycling team that quickly grew from 10 to 80 kids. The team was named USA Cycling’s Best Youth Program in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
