What inspired you to ride?
In 1998 my family moved to Pennsylvania. My dad had used bicycling as his main mode of weight loss and as a result he became interested in cycling as a sport.
Racing obstacle you overcame?
Riding in a good position in a field and the ability to corner well helped me do well in races but it didn't help me understand the need to train hard in order to make racing easier.
Favorite cheat meal?
Favorite healthy meal or snack?
My favorite snack is a 1 avocado, 1 cup of spinach, 1 cup of frozen pineapple and 1 banana smoothie made with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a few chunks of ice.
Tip for staying healthy?
Prioritize time for yourself every day. Whether the time is used to walk, ride, do yoga, read or watch the news, designate time every day to better yourself physically or mentally.
What motivates you to ride?
I am motivated by my curiosity of what knowing what else I can achieve and how far I can push myself to do well. The motivation extends beyond the bike and into the classrooms that I visit for school bike safety talks.
