Being a competitive athlete prior to and then getting injured that way, I didn’t turn my back on it. But at the same time, I recognized that as I was moving into a new phase of my life, having to relearn my life, and then relearn a new sport, or a sport, that I did in a different way, I felt like I had sort of checked that box, and I didn’t necessarily want to try to continue to just pursue that. At the same time, I still love to ride my bike, I have a racing chair that I enjoy using. I think the limitations of my time have kept me from pursuing it more competitively. But the enjoyment of actually doing that is really what it’s all about for me now and being able to spend the time with my children and on bike rides with them.
