And so it BEGINS…

A Lifestyle of cycling adventures

Hey LIFE JUNKY!

I’m Monica

Endurance and Cycle Traveler, Professional Blogger, and eCommerce Adventrepreneur. Join me as I share epic rides, wild stories, health + training, and useful travel + business tips.

But it wasn’t always like this…

I’ve spent a good chunk of my young adult life following what I was told is a “successful” life: Get Straight A’s in High School + College, land a 9-5 CAREER, get married, have kids, buy a home with a white-picket fence, and you are SET! Although all of the above are AMAZING accomplishments, I can’t help but feel like there’s more to life than this. I’m not completely there yet, and I don’t plan to be. To CONTINUE to challenge myself thru cycling, travel, and entrepreneurship, along with maintaining a loving marriage and family, I’ve found the very essence of FREEDOM and JOY money can’t buy. Now, I can’t wait to share more of my experiences with you in hopes you are AWAKEN with the VERVE and SPUNKNESS you are meant to be in this world. Let’s go!

I got my first real glimpse in the world of Hatha Yoga, and it didn’t disappoint! Check out what I got out of it. Eye-opener stuff!
