Random thoughts on mountain biking

Our weekends have been packed full of mountain bike rides and we are having a blast! We have a few regular spots we ride, but we have also been exploring some new trails. We rode Santiago Oaks Regional Park yesterday afternoon for the first time and enjoyed some beautiful views at the top...

Mountain biking is difficult, especially when you are new to the sport. There are some seriously steep {and scary} climbs and downhills on the trails we ride. On the uphills, slow and steady wins the race. It reminds me of our journey to have a baby. It takes a lot of patience and it helps to keep a level head. I am learning how to get better at all of this waiting, whether it is patiently climbing a hill on my bike or waiting through each one of my cycles. Our riding has really paid us back for our patience. We have lost a combined 54 lbs, our endurance is improving and we are stronger than ever. We can feel a difference the more we ride. I hope that our patience through this journey to get pregnant pays us back just as well.
