The way many Latinas are built — with strong, shapely lower halves — you’d think we’d be natural cyclists. For María del P. Vázquez, that was exactly the case.

To me, when I pamper myself it’s a reward! I encourage all of you to drop everything and pamper yourself too! When you work hard, play hard right?!
