Stoke+SSCX+Snow=Podium Hang Time
While I have one more race on the calendar, this was really the ic(weasel)ing on the cake for my CX season.
After a forced two months off the bike, plus another two-ish to get in race shape, and work stress, I was able to put together a solid latter piece of the season. While I was frustrated many times this year knowing I was capable of more, it was in that frustration that helped me get up at 4am, in order to do my workouts before work, for I knew I had more in me then my results were showing. While I still suffer when I’m tired or stressed with TBI related issues, I feel like I’m over the big hump of them. After NoHo, NBX, and Ice Weasels, I feel like I turned a corner in many ways; I felt like I was racing differently, with more determination, and clear headed. I’m ready to push the envelope for next season!
This podium jump is exactly what I needed. I’m jumping off with two rad ladies: Roni, who I look up to as a fellow racer, as someone who is strong, skilled, and fearless on the course, but knows how to have fun while doing it. Sharon, who epitomizes the word hardcore like no one else and stubborn as all heck, but able to laugh it off when it doesn’t work out. I’m also pretty freakin’ lucky to call these ladies friends.
I am honored and grateful to have raced with all of the amazing #NECXLadies out there this season: Thank you!! And for the rest of #NECX (family/friends/fellow teammates/photographers/promoters/countless others): You all rock, thank you!
To Kristen: You are quite simply the best in so many ways-I ❤️ you!!
