Balance

Training for my Paralympic Dream is a full time job and took up most of my time, energy, and thought. But, when working towards that goal, I had to also find balance with my family.

2021 Comes to an End

Well it’s has been an amazing year full of ups and downs. COVID continued to affect the racing calendar. Many events internationally that I would have competed in to include National Championships and World Cups I did not attend.

2021 Tokyo Paralympic Games

People are often asking me about what my biggest takeaway was from my experience in Tokyo. I honestly have to say it was all of it. Even though this was a different Paralympics then any other Paralympics because of the worldly conditions, I made it a point to go there and enjoy every aspect of the experience. My family has sacrificed so much for me to be there over the last 5 years that if I don’t enjoy everything, then...
