|Congrats! Keep going!|
The fact that you are here, reading about this means so much to me - thank you very much for your support.
My cycling journey began in 2016, and it literally changed my life. I met a wonderful new friend (and now, husband), Aaron, who introduced me to the sport of cycling. Over the past two years, I have biked over 4,000 miles (including 150 of that in Pelotonia), I have lost over 90 lbs, and began running and swimming as well. What I lost in weight, I gained in self confidence, self love, and self belief. Cycling has taught me to be at peace with my thoughts and that my mind will give out LONG before my body.
The real reason I ride for Pelotonia is because CANCER SUCKS and Pelotonia is doing something about it. 100% of the money raised goes directly to cancer research here in Columbus! In 2002, I lost my Aunt Kathy to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Since then, many more family members and friends have been diagnosed with cancer. Most recently, my dad. He is doing amazing and fighting the crap out of the Multiple Myloma he was diagnosed with in 2018. I RIDE FOR THEM - THIS YEAR I RIDE FOR HIM. This year, I have decided to start out as a virtual rider and see where that takes me! Whatever I raise will dictate my ride this year. $1250 - I ride 25 miles; $3000 - I ride 200.
