At the age of 22 she had a spinal injury that ended her dreams of becoming an athlete. Through a lot of pain, disappointment and treatment she slowly got better. Two years later she wanted to prove to herself that she could still achieve big goals so she set out to cycle the Iron Curtain Trail also known as Eurovelo 13. The route took her from Norway on the Barents Sea through 19 countries ending on the Black Sea at the Turkish-Bulgarian border. It was 5 months and 5,600 miles of cycling a diverse range of landscapes, cultures, and climates. You can read more about her adventure at cyclingtheironcurtain.wordpress.com.
