What inspired you to ride?
My dad! He has accomplished more on a bicycle than anyone I know. Not with jerseys or results, but by simply getting back on a bike after life-changing injuries.
Racing obstacle you overcame?
Regaining confidence after several consecutive crashes, and learning to trust myself to come back smarter and a better bike-handler for it.
Favorite cheat meal?
Chocolate + anything I can put chocolate in.
Favorite healthy meal or snack?
Favorite snack would definitely be sauerkraut or kimchi. Also cranberry sauce. And rainbow carrots. Color is a theme here...
Tip for staying healthy?
Unplug from your phone or computer for at least a few hours a day and explore. Go on a walk, ride a new road, or try out a new trail. It’s good to refresh the routine every once in awhile.
What motivates you to ride?
The satisfaction of tackling a new obstacle is addictive! I’m a life-long learner and explorer, and right now there’s no better way for me to keep going than by doing it on two wheels.
