“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”
― J.M. Barrie
Sara and I hit the trail again together today. She is just a blast to ride with. We started up Pet and rode up Tab, and decided on Holy Cross.
My only concern was my utter terror at riding that trail. So I told Sara I would do it if she coached me. So she did. And she was great. She demonstrated, and explained, and was patient, and resisted harassing me when I chickened out.
There was one rock feature that I had never even tried before- way way to frightening. But she walked me through it and I did it and she made me do it again, smoother, and I did and it was great and I couldn’t believe it and I was so proud of myself and completely stoked at my bravery like I’m not a man but like I was as proud as a man, you know what I’m saying? I was high on it all day.
