“Your voice was with me when I was climbing the hills and going into the correct gear, it was with me on the twists and turns of the road. I no longer have a fear of cars, or stopping at a stop light, or riding on the road. It was with me to not be afraid or discouraged but to keep going when the road was long and the finish felt unattainable. I want Wenzel Coaching to know how thankful I am that they have a resource people can go to, that will match them up with fantastic people who are making a difference in people’s lives, helping them to become better athletes, and helping them get closer to their goals and dreams.” ~Katrina D.
