My story is simple. I was the MOST unathletic person in the world!!! When it came to my ‘physical being’, I was uncomfortable in my own skin, and at times very anxious. I preferred to be a wallflower and to hide from any real adventure.
Shortly after I married my best friend, James, he bought me my first real road bike. I had no idea that I had just started not one, but two, life long relationships.
Less than six months later I found myself at the base of Alpe d’Huez, a mountain in the French Alps well known for its appearances in the Tour de France. Completely overwhelmed, and wondering how the hell I was going to make it to the summit where our hotel was, this would be an absolutely life changing day. It was also the start of a journey, which I am still on.
