2012 Race Plans: Completing all of the CCCX-MTB XC Series Races (half way there)

What makes you a Tough Chik: Perseverance.  I started riding bike in May 2011.  I was SLOW!!!  Although everyone around me told me I needed to ride more than once a week to get stronger, I didn’t take the leap until February 2012.  After losing someone I cared for deeply, I decided it was time to  live and that is why I signed up for my first MTB race with no training.  OK, I did finish dead last and YES, they held the next race for 30 minutes since I hadn’t returned yet, BUT finished all 15 miles and ten was the furthest I had ever gone at that point.  I am now training and riding 4-5 days a week.  Mountain biking has become a confirmation of life for me.  It is so amazingly beautiful on top of the hills, here, in Monterey.  I can only wonder why I waited so long to get going.  I have to admit that I am now obsessed with biking!  😎

Fun Fact: I am a total Math geek and will be starting my Masters in Mathematics this fall.
