We have been having some great weather and yesterday we got a chance to go mountain biking. Parts of the trail were cleared from leaves, so that was definitely a plus for me. It’s so much easier to avoid obstacles when you can see them. On one particular trail, there was some hard packed clay... Continue Reading →
Can Someone Please Clear The Trail?
Yesterday, Kasey and I went for a quick mountain bike ride after work. I was excited to go on the ride because I have not had a chance the past couple of weeks to go. One thing I did not count on was that the trails were almost unrecognizable because of all the leaves that... Continue Reading →
Where’s My Path In Life?
Yesterday, I got a chance to go mountain biking and did not realize how covered the trails would be from all the fallen leaves. I have to admit, I felt a little intimidated at first because it was very hard to see the trail. I didn't go super fast (not that I can) because I... Continue Reading →
Yesterday I went mountain biking and I made a big mistake! Now that the park is closing earlier, we were not able to park where we sometimes do at the trail head. We only had an hour to ride, so we decided to park at the bottom and take the connector trail up to the... Continue Reading →
SS: I Can’t Put My Finger On It

I rode it a few times last year, but wanted to get stronger in my legs before trying it again this year, because it starts off on steep climb that feels like it goes on forever! I believe...

First Time Riding Alone
I finally went mountain biking all by myself! Usually my husband goes with me, but he had to work late and the weather was perfect...so I took a chance and went. I had such an awesome time! I went at my own pace, and just truly enjoyed myself. The only downside to my ride was... Continue Reading →
A Couples’ Ride
My husband emailed me this video today and I laughed practically the whole time while I watched it. Why? Because it reminded me so much of our earlier rides together when I was just learning. Don't get me wrong, I am still learning, but I have come a long way from last year. Whoever made... Continue Reading →
It’s Never Too Late
When I was in my thirties and first started out on my weight loss journey, I lived in Florida. There was a paved bicycle trail that went from one city to another, and a friend and I would ride it a few times a week for some exercise. My favorite part of the ride was... Continue Reading →
