Off-Day ActivityHanging out with the family and our adorable floof

Started the year tired, overweight, unfit and seriously lacking in motivation, got sick and to recover took on Kate Courtney’s KateEpic challenge cycling a whole 36 miles in 8 days - it hurt sometimes but I did it - and somehow managed to inspire a world class mountain biker! Motivation managed. I started to ride more and had a huge crash. Six weeks later it was discovered that I had a fractured wrist, but somehow the motivation didn’t leave me this time. Back on the bike as soon as I could be, I rode every day until illness hit the family again- still, despite it all and a recent surgery, I am craving getting out there again, determined to head into my 50th year with two wheels firmly on the ground to better support my mountain biking family and work towards my NICA level 2 coaching license. 2020 has been a year of change for us in so many ways, and I’m looking forward to getting out there to support my teen son at races and maybe even race myself!
