By the time my sophomore season rolled around, I was 4 pant sizes smaller (14 to a 6). My goal was never to lose weight. It would take me an HOUR to eat enough breakfast to make it to mid-morning snack. I just really, REALLY loved riding my bike.
That spring, I made it onto our Nationals squad-- and we won the women's team time trial, the team omnium, podium'd our girls in the criterium and Mara won the road race.
At the year-end team party, I was awarded a skin suit to recognize my vast improvement.
So to the next Most Improved Woman on the Whitman College Cycling Team:
Just keep riding!
