Our first guest post from another Bike Shop Girl, Sarah Matchett. Sarah is a USA Cycling coach based out of my shop, Cool Breeze Cyclery in North Carolina. Sarah recently competed in the UCI World Duathlon Championships, placing 10th overall in women (non-elite.)
I’m often asked how I keep doing what I do. 5 a.m. mornings, endless miles on the trainer, in the pool. Worn out running shoes… worn out dog. Folks think I have some secret knowledge, or extra gear that keeps me uninjured, motivated, strong and healthy. The truth is, there is no secret gear. No magic pill, no religious practice, no expensive bike part that will bring you the results you want. There is simply, moving your body, more than zero, every day.
