Not sure how to answer this but will try to give an honest assessment:
Born and raised in NY. 36 years young. I grew up on welfare with food stamps and free lunch from school because we couldn't afford to pay. I never graduated college and have been working full time since I was 17 years old. I never smoked or tried drugs and I've been vegan or "plant based" for 16 years, well before it was trending. I currently work in the boutique fitness industry (SoulCycle!) and have for 8 years as their Sr. Director of Bike Operations. While I work here and see the amazing change that can happen for people on bikes that go nowhere and in rooms that are too warm, my true passion comes to life when I get to ride (or run) outside. I'm close to hitting 5,000 miles riding this year and 1,000 miles running. My first marathon was a 50 mile Ultra Marathon (it went well!) and my first triathlon was a Half Ironman distance (went horribly wrong!) but I've been steadily/readily/easily building up consistency in training and endurance with a goal to be prepared to do any-distance or any-race.
