After participating in triathlon, I decided in 2006 to start racing. My good friend Jason Coble, who managed Pedal Pushers in Lowry at the time, hooked me up with the race team Damas. It was great to start racing on an all woman’s team. Many of the friendships that I have developed over the years have come from cycling. I still enjoy running and swimming but do those separately now. When not cycling, I am an avid knitter and volunteer for the causes I am passionate about. I love racing my bike still after all of these years. I have moved to more masters racing but love to encourage others to join the sport.
