"For the zillionth time, I confronted my reality: Spin was something I'd never done. Being good at this was going to take time. Just because I wasn't perfect off the bat didn't mean that I couldn't be great. It didn't mean that I didn't have potential. It didn't mean I wasn't working hard...
One day, everything clicked. My demo ride, where you invite a bunch of good friends to hit the saddle and squad up for a little practice ride, was the next day. I set up in the studio by myself and ran through my entire playlist. By the fifth song, no mess-ups, no frustration, just this feeling of accomplishment. And the next day, in front of 24 close friends, I did it. I lead my first class, nearly bursting into tears the second the final song came to a close. Surrounded with love, I'd done something I wondered if I was even capable of doing in the first place. And the best part? I did it well."
