The Column

I discovered my love for writing in April of 2017. I started my blog that month during my time off the bike. It was a dark time, but writing provided me with an outlet; a platform upon which I could analyze my past decisions and mistakes, and learn from them. 

An overwhelming amount of support came in from friends, family and strangers. So many people could relate. I began to enjoy writing for the reading pleasure of others. 

I pitched a column to Canadian Cycling Magazine in the autumn of 2017. The column is designed to answer reader's questions about training, racing, mental health, or anything else you can think of! I encourage you to write to me or comment questions on posts for me to answer in my articles.
