About Me

Eileen is a retired Army officer, grandma, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints church lady, fitness & vacation fanatic, cruise addict, transcontinental cyclist, aspiring Appalachian Trail thru hiker, ice cream addict (especially Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk) and recovered 4-H & rodeo queen Mom. (Poetic, eh?)  In 2016, she was in great health, but had experienced some life changes that put her into early retirement, so she started working on her bucket list.

Links to her first epic adventures are below:

Item #1:  9/21/2017 Southern Tier Transcontinental Cycling Tour

Item #2:  8/23/2018 Pacific Coast Vancouver, B.C to Tijuana, Mexico Cycling Tour

In 2019, she trained for less epic undertakings.  She bagged the tallest peak in Utah (Kings Peak) and in the cycling arena, she won almost every race and was the overall female winner in her division of both the Utah Summer Games and Huntsman World Senior Games.  Covid forced the cancellation of epic adventures in 2020, but in 2021, Eileen is signed up to cycle up the Atlantic Coast with a group of people who are raising funds for Multiple Sclerosis Research and Patient Care.  Hopefully a vaccine is rolled out soon to make that adventure possible.

Note:  When you get in my blog, to navigate to the next or previous blog post, look for the tiny “NEXT” and “PREVIOUS” links that follow the “Published by Eileen Hardy” paragraph at the bottom of each page.  If you can’t find them, message me, and I will send help.
