Pelo Tawnya…WHO IS SHE…Really?

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain the genesis of your leaderboard name… #PeloTawnya


I wish I had some great story to tell, but it’s my name (pronounced Tonya) fused with Peloton. Thanks to Jenn’s clarification during a live interview, I think everyone can pronounce it! J

If I had to change my LB name it would #RideB4sonrise……Because I have to get my rides in before my son rises….which happens to be before sunrise! #Zerodarkoclockrider


Personal Info:

Name: Tawnya Mosley

Where do You live? A small mountain town in Southern California, Wrightwood

Married/Single?   Married to my high school sweetheart for 23 years….We have been together for 26 years. We actually met in this town, moved away, then moved back four years ago.

Kids/Grandkids? We have 4 children, 3 girls 24,18,13 and one boy 5 ½. We also have 2 grandchildren boy 5, girl 3……yes, the boys are 6 months apart. No, I had no desire to be on the MTV reality show that depicted this scenario. Lol

Pets? 2 boxers and one Chihuahua who makes the rules.

Working/Retired? I am a math teacher by trade, but since my son was born with health problems and some special needs, I have been home.

If you went to college…what college did you go to?

A public state University, California State San Bernardino wear I earned my BA in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Math. (Blew my scholarships when I dropped out of college after the first year and had to go the affordable route when I matured). Earned my Masters in Education at Chapman University.

Motto in which you live by? Not really a motto, but I believe that controlled, steady breathing can get you through, or push you through, anything. Even if it seems impossible…a workout (like a death push from JSS when you just wanna die), anxiety, anger, labor, etc…. BREATHING IS EVERYTHING…literally, or you’d die. lol

How long have you had your bike – I have been an app rider since October 2017 when my doctor suggested spinning as an alternative to running. I finally got my Peloton in March 2018.
