This is my second season being on the Enve team. A little about me, I'm a recreational rider, who is getting into racing. Planning on participating in a century ride in 2020, and also the Ironman in Kona. I love competing (collegiate swimmer at D1 school), picked up running and recently did a half marathon in 1:47 mins.

April Challenge: My Why
I've been competitive my whole life. From collegiate swimming, to USTA Tennis, and everything in between. I had time to reflect on this when on my 100 miles around the island. And I did question myself: why? Is it the thrill of speeding down hills? Is it the freedom from being stuck inside? Is it just for fitness? I would say it's all of the above. My why I do this: it's making me become mentally tough. It gives me clarity and fortitude. So while I ride and run, it's not only to be a better athlete, but to also mentally toughen up to know that I have the mindset to accomplish anything.
Wish list: S-works Venge
