|What is your day job?|
I wake up, I do my stretching, and I drink coffee. This is how each day begins…and this not a job, this is living. And as the sun rises, the living continues; a balance of work at The Conservation Alliance, coaching athletes with Cycle-Smart International, training on the bike, spending time with my husband, Ben, and our pup, Piper, and being a positive influence on those around me. I don’t have a “day job”. I live. Period.
|What is your biggest achievement?|
Becoming a cyclist. Learning, studying and refining my craft. The craft of riding a bike. And being fortunate enough to do so for LIV. A great honor, and a great achievement.
|What is your goal for 2018?|
Say yes, then figure out the details.
|Why do you love cycling?|
Finding my limits and then going past them. Over and over again.
|What do you love about Liv?|
Our team. The authentic community of women who lift one another up and push the boundaries of what is possible with unyielding positivity and support.
|What is one item you would never leave home without?|
Any overnight trip requires three things: My Aeropress, my passport, and my bathing suit. That’s three items.
|If you could learn a new sport or skill this year, what would it be?|
I am going to race an enduro. And it is going to be petrifyingly amazing.
|What is your favorite place to travel?|
Lower Austria, in the Methow Valley. The most beautiful place on earth.
|What is your favorite food?|
Anything green, and from the garden. And carrot cake.
|Who is your favorite riding partner?|
All of them!
|How do you spend your time off the bike?|
Drinking coffee, making food, walking my pup and swimming in the river. Yeap, that is pretty much it… oh, and life. Life fits in there too.
|What do you want to be "when you grow up"?|
I have no idea.. .and I hope never to know. Each day I keep learning and growing and being. If an answer is required, Peter Pan.
|Words you live by...|
What if I fall?"
