Måndagspeppen hämtar denna vecka inspiration från @jeanettetrihealth.

Jeanette Stenquist lider av flera kroniska sjukdomar och ständig värk. Hon drabbades dessutom av lungcancer för två år sedan. Då bestämde hon sig för att börja med konståkning igen, en sport hon älskat och haft stor glädje av tidigare i livet. Förutom att tävla i kategorin Adult i konståkning viger Jeanette sitt liv åt träning och hälsa. Hon har genomfört triathlontävlingen Ironman, bestigit Kilimanjaro i Tanzania, och arbetar med personlig träning, coachning och föreläsningar. Men att gå ut på isen har en särskild plats i hennes hjärta.

När Nora Falk bestämde sig för att sluta tävla lockade möjligheten att fortsätta åka konståkning i isshower. Veckans måndagspepp kommer från strålkastarljuset där @falknora tillsammans med andra konståkare i ensemblen står för underhållning på is ombord på ett kryssningsfartyg!
