Josie Smith woke up one Monday morning in 2012 and had a dialogue with herself: "Hey, you. Stop being a putz and saying you can't ride a bike. You haven't even tried riding for a long time. Stop questioning your capabilities and just try it!" Since that day Josie's life changed drastically. All for the better! She fell in love with cycling and through cycling it made her realize things in life had to change. A relationship ended and surprisingly, a new one began! She found a life partner who loved to ride bikes just as much as she did! She started blogging: Josie's Bike Life and now she works at her partner's bike shop, Decorah Bicycles ☺

I am ready to have more days like this one. I'm enjoying the ride and frankly am not giving a hoot that Time Trials is coming up. I just care about riding my bike. 🚵‍♀️💕🦄 #whatsworthit #iamspecialized_wmn #sworksepicevo #fearlesswomenofdirt #thisisgoingtobeepic

Greatly appreciating @elabbas! #bikeshoplife is in full swing and that usually means solo rides 99% of the time. This year is different and I am happy to have company! #fearlesswomenofdirt #whatsworthit #iamspecialized_wmn #bikelife

There has been a good bit of reflection happening, and that means embracing change and moving forward. I will stay committed to the events I am planning to do this year as I am hoping to do better than last year. If nothing else, I want to be in a better place mentally. Next year, excluding the local Time Trials, I may not be doing events. Instead, I will be focusing on taking time to go to a retailer summit and doing some traveling to ride trails in a low-pressure format. All of this will be based on how my neck and shoulder handle things. Maybe it's the power of baggies speaking to me, but I am feeling a shift. If I am going to ride 20-40 miles, I would love to enjoy it instead of feeling like I battled a bear over beer and pizza. I have hurt for days after a race. It sucks. I am slowly accepting that my body might appreciate the change and that not racing doesn't make me less of a rider. That not racing will give me more opportunities to go do what I do best. Ride! #whatsworthit #fearlesswomenofdirt #iamspecialized_wmn #thisisgoingtobeepic #sworksepicevo #bikelife
