An Airdrie woman continues to defy the odds as she gears up for three more races this year.

Lovepreet Deo, a former Amazing Airdrie Woman recipient, has Cerebral Palsy but doesn’t let that stop her from doing what she loves: racing on a bicycle.

Deo already took part in the Airdrie Triathlon almost two weeks ago and explained what races she’s entering next.

“I’m doing the Mayor’s Run this weekend on Sunday. In August I’m doing the Quinn’s [Quinn’s Legacy Run]. Then in September, I’m doing Terry Fox.”

Deo said she trains at the gym three days a week and loves doing these races because it gives her the freedom to move.

Deo has this advice for anyone who’s looking to achieve the same goals as her.

“Just follow your heart and if you want to do it, you can do it.”
