As 2020 comes to a close, our Athletes were asked a few questions about the events of the past year and what they are looking forward to in the next.
Nicole is the third athlete to be highlighted in this series.
How has COVID affected your fitness in the past year? What did you do to overcome these challenges?
"COVID didn't affect my fitness, my body did. My health tanked out this year. It's only been in the last month that I'm starting to regain some of my fitness goals again. I've started lifting again and hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be cycling again."
What are some things you accomplished this past year that you are most proud of?
"I'm most proud of just making it through the year. If my body had its way I don't know if I'd be here. But damn if I haven't learned when something is wrong and when to go to the ER."
What are your biggest goals going into 2021?
"I really want to be part of the Air Force Wounded Warrior events for sports. They've focused on adaptation. So things I didn't think I'd be able to do, they will help me adapt and to accomplish."
