I’m having a hard time finding the words to describe the feeling of the fire that is building inside of me. I’ve been struggling to ride outside because the group rides are cancelled for early morning rain and it’s too dangerous to ride alone. The only thing I can share with you is this. I’m driving 30 minutes to the gym to train on the spin bike every day. I’m turning my excuses into my motivation. As much as I dread sitting on that clunky spin bike I’m also manifesting my first win back. People are quick to judge, and very few actually know the real me, the hardships, and the struggle that has shaped the person I am today. I know that in order to get to where I need to be I’m going to have to be willing to do what most don’t have the guts to do. I retired from racing at 20 years old, and now I’m going to finish what I started a long time ago.
