Ever since my bad knee finally gave out at Tough Mudder in 2017, I have been looking for … something. I loved my half marathons, triathlon sprints, mud runs and obstacle course races. These events all gave me a purpose in the gym and goals to achieve and friends to train with.
But with a bad knee that will dog me for the rest of my life, my doctors have told me to stop running. I turned to cycling, and it has become a good alternative for me – and I hope you think about it for yourself, too. In the last few years, thanks to riding in the Trek 100, the Scenic Shore 150 and taking a Trek Travel vacation riding through Tuscany, I have discovered the joy of pushing for longer distances and bigger hill climbs.
