Wow. That was the subject line from an email I got this morning from Vanderkitten. I was a little stunned to learn that I'd been chosen to represent Vanderkitten as a VIP in 2014. It's such a surprise and honor! Vanderkitten Athletics promotes equality in women's sports and I've been such a fan of their women's pro cycling team and clothing. Ironically, with a drawer stuffed with several dozen cycling jerseys, I always pull out my Vanderkitten jersey for the events I've needed a shot of confidence. (Like on the 2-day Undefeated Ride -- I wore VK that first day!!) There's something empowering about that badass kitten on the front -- it gives me supergirl powers. I'm looking forward to an exciting year ahead with my fellow Vanderkitten VIPs! It's going to be an awesome year.
