I Even Amazed Myself

“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.

And we took a crap load of good pictures.20140311_100318 20140311_100328 20140311_101245 20140311_101246 IMG_6807 IMG_6808 IMG_6809 IMG_6810 IMG_6811 IMG_6813 IMG_6816 IMG_6818 IMG_6820 IMG_6826 IMG_6832 IMG_6837 IMG_6838 IMG_6841 took
