Illness to Elite Racing: One Year

HAPPY OSTOMY AWARENESS MONTH!
I made “Illness to Elite Racing: One Year” to visualize where I’ve been, and how I got to where I am now. I don’t do a lot of talking about the specific accomplishments of how far I’ve come because I know I have so much further to go. September 15th marked my year anniversary of emergency surgery. In under a year, I’ve returned to elite racing. And, 2018 is going to be even bigger!
Thank you to everyone who’s supported me through all of the challenges, growth, change and relearning this year!
You can do whatever you put your mind to, even if everyone says it’s not possible. Don’t let negative people and skeptics get you down. Most importantly, this year has taught me that I can only judge myself against myself, as the first elite road and track racer with an ostomy.
