I've really been slacking on the blog lately. It's nearly November! This summer was amazing! I ran in 3 races, rode a motorcycle, had my first solo catch, spent a week supporting a friend as she made a choice that changed everything, laughed, cried, kayaked in the fall colors, rode horses, lived. I'm equal parts excited and terrified about what the next coue months will hold. 


Zip up the jacket
Pull on the boots
Chin strap of helmet fastened securely 
The rumble as I take a seat and hold on
eyes closed tightly as we pull into traffic
Open your eyes I say to myself 
Feel and see what alive is
Trust and a bit of crazy rolled into one 
The wind through my hair 
The dopey smile plastered in my face. 
Sometimes it's not enough to mearly survive but to hold on tight and ride.
