So today I woke up a little down, was feeling the effects of thinking tomorrow is Monday and I really didn't do much this weekend. Also the weather was not the best. I think most of all I'm just a little home sick, I miss my riding buddies back home and my new riding buddies around here all live about an hour away each so its a little hard to get motivated to ride solo. Don't get me wrong a ride is always better than no ride but today in particular I was just feeling the blues. Well about 1 o'clock comes around and I'm just about to lose it, I take my dog for a walk and that does nothing besides give him a little excercise, I turn on the TV but everything was just not interesting. So I get online and I go to my go to MTBR and I I started lusting for the sweet feeling of singletrack under me after seeing all of the pictures under Passion and Nor-Cal so I decided that the only thing that would elevate my mood in any way would be to go out. Still feeling kinda down and thinking, "well this ride is going to be short, I'm going to be worn out and I'm just not going to make it that far." I get to Skyline park in Napa and little did I know I was going to have one of the best rides in a long time! I cleared sections I never clear, I climb everything in sight without dropping a foot, I hit all of the descents with confidence and I just fly through them! Everyone on the trail is great and smiling so naturally it just rubbed off on me. My day is way way better than if I wouldn't have gone out riding! I was rewarded with fun, a workout, friendly people, nature, and great views! Thank you MTBR for giving me the little push to get out and ride! My whole point of this is that even if you are just down and not feeling pretty much anything, just get out and ride, you'll be surprised how good you feel during and afterwards. I wish you all a great remainder of your weekend and a great coming week! Stay safe out there and be kind to the mountain as the mountain has been kind to you.
