earlier this year I took a leap of faith and did something scary. I went to an Adventure Race Training Camp & did an adventure race. It was a leap because part of AR is mountain biking, which really scared me.
Thus began the training. I faced ( and continue to face) my biggest fears around mountain biking, falling down and getting up. roots- rocks- (reggae) downhills- gravel -sand -single tracks- turns-
Fast forward from March- I have now become completely obsessed about mountain biking- roots-rocks-downhills-gravel-sand-single track-speed. Taking out demo bikes weekly to get in long rides; (thank you Santa Cruz Bikes!) while I save up for my bike.
I find myself laughing at myself as I love it so much and I was so afraid. I want to ride all the time. I am discovering so much nature! I have started teaching yoga & core at mountain bike events. Mountain biking has really made its way into my life. I had no idea when I said yes to the camp, that a entire new aspect would open up like this. I am learning a lot, every time I feel so stoked to have all else fade away, dropping in completely to the moment. meditation in motion.
