Have i ever started off a blog with a quote? well i am now. i read this the other day and it really spoke to me…
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear – Mark Twain
So…you are all very well aware of my fears – since i have blogged about them recently 🙂
what does someone do when they have such an intense, real, panicky fear of getting on a bike???
well if you are the bee….you buy a bike.
Please meet the bike that is still nameless. i am still working on her name: (i am open to suggestions)
she is nothing special…not expensive or overly fancy. she is simple and yet beautiful…just like moi
what inspired this? honestly….this blog.
i realized how very afraid i was of getting on a bike, that i thought the only logical thing to do was face my fear head on.
i got sad thinking of all the things i could potentially be missing out on…and so i made the decision that it had to stop.
so it starts with the bike. once i have let go of the extreme fear of the bike…maybe the running will come next?
who knows…and really…who cares! the point is I HAVE A BIKE!!!!!!
weather permitting i will be spending alot of time with her this weekend 🙂
i even bought a helmet. i almost peed myself from laughing so hard, but lets face it…i look good in anything
i was talking to some people who were telling me that no, helmets are not law for adults, but i do require a bell or a horn…even for the trails.
how is an average non biker chick like me supposed to know these things??? i guess i will have to google my city and it’s bike laws to get the 411.
wish me luck. if it all works in my favour i will fill you in on my first real bike ride.
maybe one day soon i will have a “part two” of facing my fears…maybe 🙂
