(To my female hockey team The Stanley Cupcakes I helped start 3+ years ago. A mix of 45 something woman)
I remember the day (and excitement), years ago that I had the opportunity to push my boundaries and step out on the ice with all of you. All of us have come such a long way....
Many of you know that I love to create opportunities to try new things to not only keep life exciting but to prove age is no barrier. I thrive being around others who can find joy in new accomplishments.
I am certainly no uber-athlete but I have decided to take this humungous step and join the BC Ride to Conquer Cancer with a great group called the Brainiacs led by David Desrochers whom many of you know. I will be looking for other beginner riders to ride with me (no, I don't even have a road bike yet but started spinning). No doubt fellow Brainiac/Cupcake Heather will be well off in the distance as I ride along but just having her part of this keeps me in:)
Please consider riding along with me on this team but also showing your support so I know I have others who believe in me and my abilities to finish this.
I'm actually terrified.
Support me on my cycling journey to Seattle!
