It has been a long journey…
13 years ago, I met my bike. Up to the point of this pivotal meeting I was the least athletic person in the world!!! I had no belief in my physical being. At times, I was completely uncomfortable in my own skin. I would experience a lot of anxiety in many situations, and simply wished I could blend into the wall.
My bike changed me life. It helped me to find a strong, capable physical side to my being that I never knew existed. It took me on adventures to new worlds and cultures. It took me deep into nature where I could connect with earth in a way I had never experienced. It introduced me to new friendships that would have otherwise been undiscovered. It took me to a place where my mind, body and soul melded into one and worked together to get me to the tops of mountains one pedal stroke at a time.
How a girl with no connection to her physical being could cycle to the tops of mountains belonging to the Tour de France pros I will never totally comprehend. All I know is that I get out there and I find a freedom that I never knew.
What is your passion? What do you long to do but are terrified to try?
Today IS that day that you take the first step.
IF I can do it, SO CAN YOU !!!
