I opened my eyes around 6:30 on Sunday morning. I could hear the tap, tap, tap of raindrops on the roof of the RV. As my brain started coming around my thoughts immediately went to wondering just how muddy the ride would be.
Everyone seemed to start coming together all around the same time. It was kind of like an organic happening. There was the general excitement in the air of knowing that soon we would be heading out on our ride.
At 9:00am, the riders for the 100 mile dual sport loop were set loose. It was go time.
I could ramble on and on. Instead, since Kenny and I were wearing our GoPros, I’ll let the video tell a better story of our ride than I can in words:
I tried just ride my ride and not immediately hesitate when the course looked like it was going to start getting tough. I feel like I approached the riding with a little bit more of an open mind. And most of all I think I did my best, riding with my head and not over it.
I’m so glad I went. Now I just need to work on what’s between my ears and learn to give myself a little bit of a break.
I had a great time, learned a lot, made some new friends and came home in one piece.
Life is beautiful.
