Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
That was my mindset for the Danish National Championship 2019.
As I’m writing this, I’m flying back to my apartment in the South and I’m looking much forward continue to build on this momentum. Focus is on building on my fitness and feel the confidence come back, towards World Cup no. 3. Let’s go!
I got asked quite a lot about what I’m thinking about the rest of the season, now when it all started so well. And for real... I just wanna take it one step at the time. Starting with designing a red and white kit :-) “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step” (Martin Luther King Jr).
p.s Thanks for all the support. You guys mean a lot.
P.s.s. Don’t take my sleepy bubble for something negative. I was (and am) really happy and proud of my results in the World Cup, but there are two things to it (I think); first of all, it feels strange when you achieve something you almost didn’t dare to dream of. Secondly, when people ask me if I aren’t just super happy now, yes I’m happy, but I’m not happier if I podium in a world cup than any other day - I want my basic happiness to be based on something else than something as unpredictable as bike-racing results :-) (Not to dismiss that success-feeling is absolutely amazing, no doubts)

Success is just an awesome feeling. The feeling is worth all the work.
But there is a difference between knowing you can do something and actually do it.
Surprised? Surprisingly surprised. Last year when I was competing with Sina Frei and Evie Richards in U23, I could see on the lap times that our’s often was inside top 10 in the elite women field, but it’s hard to compare 1:1. Whatsoever I knew inside of me that I was able to compete against the best women, also in the elite field. But there is a difference between knowing you can do something and actually do it. It takes a lot.
But I took the shot and I met my dreams one hundred %.
I don't really believe it, it's just such a dream coming true. I owe many people a huge thank you. Honestly, WOW.
Now I’m back in Denmark - appreciating the last weeks of success and continuing to chase dreams.
Being an underdog is awesome.

I guess it’s a common mistake. At least I tend to spend my time looking for more instead of appreciating what is right in front of me. But I do think, that as an athlete, where your job is to perform you will always be looking for more. How can I beat yesterday?
