Sometimes in live you may not be overly enthusiastic about something, but you still have to do it. At times this will be your job, you don't want to go, but you have to in order to provide for your family. Other times it may be your marriage, you aren't stoked about it at that moment, but because of your commitment you work through it as a couple.
Well, this morning I had one of these moments, with going mountain biking. I had zero (0) desire to get out of bed, drag myself out in 30-something degree weather and pedal my (the camps) bike around on dirt and rocks in the hope of having fun and become thin. But, out of obligation to Coyne I did. See, we made plans last night to ride and I knew nobody else was going (Gregs running a marathon soon and has taken time off of riding, Kris is sick, the Jones are filming something for camp, Jarred's a puss, Mike doesn't ride unless its over 40 degrees, Fisher is racing this weekend and won't ride today) so I had to go.
We ended up having a good time. He took me on some trails I had never ridden and that was cool to learn some more of our trail system, in some case "trail" would be an over statement, it was more like "dried up creek full of rocks and branches that were washed down stream in the snow melt". So, I didn't end up riding very well, but it was still fun.
Heres the latest news concerning my bike from UPS.
