About Heidi

img_4924.jpgHi, world!

I’m Heidi, a recovering mediocre pro XC mountain bike racer who discovered that there’s a lot more to life than racing a bicycle, and that I need a whole separate blog to talk about it!  The idea for this blog was born out of a big road trip to Iceland, which I realized didn’t really fit the theme of my other blog, Heidi Rides Bikes.  And… well… I do a lot more in life than just riding bikes!

Since a child, travel and life often meant road trips and seeing the sites all around the United States.  I continued this love of road trips and travel through adulthood, traveling all around the United States racing my mountain bike.  Currently I travel a lot for my day job in public health, which leads to awesome adventuring in the off hours, and try to fill my weekends with other adventures all over the place.

About me… I love cats (a lot).  I want to pet all the cats in the world!  I’m downright obsessed with Iceland.  Raspberries are my favorite food, and my Subaru Forester (Mr. Fozzy) is one of my best friends.  Shampoo bars are one of my biggest and best discoveries of 2019, and I own ten bicycles.

So welcome to my shenanigans!  You can use the menu on the right sidebar to select posts from a particular location I’ve visited, or by activity type.  Enjoy!
