my white whale

He likes to push. That man sees something in me that most of the times I don't even see in my self.

With out a doubt, every time I tell him where I'm struggling, he gets me on my bikes & puts me in the situation of having to confront my fears. I love him for it.

Since I got my bike, I've had this goal that I knew I would be ready for whatever if I could just conquer this one mountain in Athens. Parnetha mountain. The thing with it is, is it's a whole mess of tight, hairpin turns on a steep incline (& we all know how much I love those). I mean there are enough hairpins in there to fix up a brides' up-do before her wedding. & they are steep & exceptionally tight, & they make my stomach knot up. For months he hasn't dragged me there because he knew that deep down, until I had the front crash-bars on my bike installed, I wasn't mentally prepared for it. Now that I have them, I have no more excuses..... & he's dragged me up there twice in the span of two days.

You know what it did for me? It made me feel like a superhero. I didn't fall off. I didn't panic. I didn't cross over & out of my lane. I didn't slam on my brakes. I just rode the mountain like a rollercoaster. Like a champ. & at the end I even punched the sky & cheered. & he was so nonchalant about it all! I mean the audacity! Here I was in my moments, so unbelievably proud of myself, & he treated it like it was nothing. When I confronted him... which I obviously did because I'm an asshole like that... all he had to say was he knew I could do it because I've been doing tougher things for months. & he was right. I have. It's just some how, I had turned this mountain into my ultimate challenge & built it up as way more intimidating that it really was.

Like I said... I love this man.

don't do that...

I have a bone to pick with any company that has the audacity to stick their logo on my vehicle without asking for my consent. Surly you know what I'm talking about. Or maybe you just haven't noticed b
