Words about Christa, by Erika.




My sister is the hardest working, bravest person I know.  I will forever be inspired by her tenacity towards her sport, and her ability to overcome challenges.  As I think of what to say about Christa, I automatically want to tell you about how she was the most talented ski racer I have ever seen, and how she would have gone so far in that sport.  I instinctively want to explain how she was forced out of the sport of ski racing due to 4 torn ACLs and 4 torn menisci, leading to a total of 8 knee surgeries by the time she was 20.  I want to tell you how unfair it was that she had to go through all of that… but I have to stop myself, because that would merely be a story of life’s unfair trials.  Instead, Christa’s is a story of perseverance and heart.  Christa’s story is not one of “what could have been” or “if only…” It’s one about her path to becoming a world class cyclist.  And that is who she is, with all her heart and being: a cyclist.
