A Girl’s Gotta Have Her Shoes!

“I think I need another pair of shoes,” I mentioned casually the other night. “Shoes?  Another pair? You have more shoes than Imelda Marcos!” he responded with exasperation. “I know.  But this pair is different.”  He sighed, weary of my shoe fetish, and the clutter it created at the bottom of the closet. “You don’t […]

Hi, I'm Cat A.Olson, @According2Cat on Twitter, or @TheDigitalCat on Instagram, and I write about my cycling adventures. In 2010, after 25 years off the bike, I decided to get a bike and start riding again. In 2012, I was diagnosed with DCIS, an early and completely curable form of breast cancer. I had five weeks of radiation treatment and I rode my bike to nearly every treatment. In 2013, I decided to get a faster bike. I'm finally getting serious about losing weight, and riding really fast with the cool kids.

I ride every chance I get, as fast as I can, for as long as my body will allow. I'm learning how to embrace challenges like helmet hair, padded pants, clipless shoes, flat tires, bugs in my teeth, and...ugh...hills. I'm learning that both cycling and life are easier and a lot more fun when you're in the right gear.
