Cycling Builds Confidence, Restores Spirit

Today’s post is written by Trudy Hussman, a RLAG Cycling member, avid cyclist for 9 years, and a professional writer for much longer! She tells the story of Penny Clouser, who was recently awarded Ride Like A Girl’s “Most Inspirational Rider” (selected by the 2014 RLAG bicycling girlfriends).  It is a story of overcoming the odds, rebuilding confidence and restoring the spirit after a series of life’s toughest challenges. It is also a poignant example of RLAG’s theme for 2015, “Come as you are!”

“Block & Flow”: Transparent Blogger Mom Brings Balance to New Year Aspirations

Mom, blogger and a dear friend. Follow Resh at www.writtenbyresh.com

Mom, blogger and my dear friend, Reshma, writes from the heart at http://www.writtenbyresh.com

New Years in all its glory has its challenges; the tension between high expectations and the realities of limited resources, being overly preoccupied with what our peers are doing (or thinking), and the natural fatigue that comes with schedules full of family, jobs and, well, life! For a balanced look at the glorious road ahead, read this personal blog from a transparent mom who is aiming to take a tempered view of it all and encourage us to approach our 2015 journey with grace, a keen eye on our values and indulging in an occasional luxurious nap.

While this post is not our typical cycling fare,  I think you will appreciate its relevance to us bikey folk who are busily and bravely setting big goals, and striving (or struggling) to make progress towards them. Scroll down to read today’s “Block and Flow”.

Thank you, Reshma McClintock. “Block and Flow” was a good read for my morning!

Feast…Famine.

All…Nothing.

My previous post was about my excitement of beginning another year and all of the blank space splayed out before me. The truth is that since writing those words I’ve really struggled in the first days of 2015; to find motivation, to complete my to-do lists, to follow through and to really live well. I’m all block or all flow. What does that mean?

Block: stopped dead in my tracks; vision-less, scatterbrained, unorganized and lazy.

Flow: bursting at the seams with energy, drive and focus; fulfilling my commitments and working passionately.

Some people live by the “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”, mantra. I can tend to live by the “I’ll sleep when I’m supposed to be working” mantra.

No, I don’t sleep all day. I have a 3 1/2 year old (pretty sure I sleep less now than I did when she was an infant). But do I think
