Old(ish) Dog, New Tricks

Old(ish) Dog, New Tricks Tagged with:

Although my love for nature makes me fairly adventurous, when it comes to potential for physical harm I’m a huge wimp. However, I married an outdoor adventurer mountain man who, among other crazy activities, loves mountain biking. Walking up and down trails on my own two feet is totally different from careening down inclines trusting rubber two inches in width to take you over boulders and logs and various man-made death obstacles.  Therefore, until recently, mountain biking fell into the category of “Things I don’t do.” There was the fear aspect, but also, it was a new thing I wasn’t sure I’d be good at. I like doing things I know I’m good at… like running and soccer. I liked staying in my little box of athletic pride!
