I sat on a mountain bike for the first time in my life one year and four months ago. It has forever changed me. Inner demons lose their power when I am on my bike. I am fully alive and free. Challenges become intriguing rather than intimidating.
I am nobody in the mountain biking world. I have been in three races. I don't Twitter. I just crave the challenge, the miles, the climbing and the quest to do something beyond the drudgery of everyday.
Live life. Push it a little for a change. Why not?
Prove you’re alive. If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic.
This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time.
I talk about the fire inside a lot in this blog. Starting April 15, 2011 you can watch it burn here:
