"Two and a half years ago I came to a crossroads in my life and knew that if I kept traveling down the same road I would meet an early demise. My life had been in shambles for a long time and I decided I needed to take control of it.
After a 13-year break I decided to swing my leg back over the bike. Once I was back on, a fire started burning in me that I had not felt in a long time. I wanted to race again and I wanted to go big….with the Masters Nationals road race. This time I would do everything the right way and I knew I needed a coach.
I decided to contact my old friend Rebecca to get some advice. Low and behold, she was a coach and she was ready to help.
Over the next 9 months, through her coaching and motivation, she transformed me into a machine; at age 43 I was the strongest I had ever been. I went Nationals and was able to ride with the very best in the country. I am also a regular at the top of the Strava KOMs in my area.
