Julie Leth Blog: One of the most important people in my life

I have had this blog lying on my desktop for quite a while, and since my sister is leaving to study a semester in San Diego, while I’m busy riding a World Tour race in Sweden, I figured now was a good time. So here’s a non cycling related blog, about one of the most important people in my life!

Not too long ago, my sister told me, my 12-year-old cousin made a school project about me. The assignment had to be about a famous Dane. The choice was made between me and the singer Mø. I can’t say I wasn’t flattered she chose me. My sister joked, she didn’t get, why my cousin hadn’t written about her. She then suggested I wrote a blog about her, since she is one of my biggest fans and supporters. I decided to go for it. Not because she is one of my biggest fans, but because I am one of hers, and if she had a facebook fanpage, I would be the first one to hit the like button.

I often get asked, who my idols are. Truth be said, I do not really have any. However, I do get inspired by the people around me. I get inspired by my team mates. I get to see on close hand, how hard they work, to reach their goals, and how they handle tough times. Like when Jolien bounced back from Flanders disappointment to win Dottignies the next day. The same way, I get inspired by my friends and family at home. How they handle life, how they treat other people, how hard they study. One of those people is my sister, Pernille. Pernille is 14 months younger than me. She’s in law school, works at the library, and loves cooking. We share an apartment in Aarhus (Denmark), which is a pretty sweet deal for her, since I am never home. I am not complaining either. First of all, she is one of my best friends, but she’s also an amazing cook, and way more organised than me. We’re very different, but luckily share the same taste in television shows and movies. When we were young, we did track and field together, and she also started cycling. However, sport was never her thing. In opposition to my brother and I, she isn’t competitive at all. She was always in it for the fun and friendships. If someone crashed, she would stop and wait, to make sure the person was okay. She’s incredibly supportive of me, and always follow the races on twitter, or live steam. However, I don’t think she’s too bothered with the results. As long as I don’t crash, she’s happy! This is pretty much her in a nutshell, and one of the things I admire about her. She is incredibly kind-hearted, and selfless. She always looks after everyone, and makes sure everyone is okay. I guess all elite athletes are somewhat selfish, and she is a constant reminder to me, of not being it. As much as I love cycling, she’s a good reminder that there’s more important things in life. She always put me in my place, and make sure I behave better. The way she treats other people, and always has time to help, even though she juggles UNI and two jobs, inspires me. I am sure having her by my side, makes me a better person.
