Sev and I had a nice weekend...I say that alot don't I?....but who doesn't love the weekends??
Anyways, we just hung out on Saturday, sev worked and I cleaned. Then Sunday we rode, and I mean we rode HARD. It was the hardest I've ever ridden. Not the hardest trail...but the hardest I've pushed myself on a ride. We ended up running into another group of riders along the way and they happened to have a girl with them. I've never had the chance to ride with a girl so I asked Sev to hang back with that group so I could get a feel for how other girls ride. She was FAST. Skill wise we were probably even, I was able to keep up with her and we kind of had the same style. However, she was on a bigger bike, more power, and was able to pull away just a tad on the straights. This frustrated me and forced me to ride harder in the turns. It wasn't a "race"...but in my mind it was a challenge. Sev said he had never seen me ride like that. It was sooooo fun!!! We came around a bend and I saw the girl slow down and from what I could tell the turn was just a slight turn and then it straightened back out...."nows my chance!"...I twisted the throttle and entered the turn going faster than I should have been...it wasn't a small turn, it was a jack-knife. Quick thinking and fast reactions had me ditching the bike mid turn. It sailed off the side of the 3-4ft drop off and I landed smack in the middle of the trail.....ouch. Sev was quick on his feet (literally, he dropped his bike and was running from the momentum up to me). I just wanted him to get my bike. I suffered two badly scrapped elbows, a bruise on my stomach, a hole in my pants on the left knee, and scrapes and bruises on both knees. My bike suffered a broken front brake lever. My helmet suffered a broken bill. Severyn laughed because, when I finally got to my feet, I brushed myself off and said "shoot, she got away." IT WAS SUCH A RUSH!!!! I'm really in love with this sport. We got back on and did a bit more riding before we called it a day. I have nice big bandages on my elbows and I realize I look like a kid that forgot to put their elbow pads on while learning how to ride a bicycle...but I'm okay, and I can't wait to go again!!!!
I emailed a few of you but wanted to put a quick note on this blog about my new blog!!!! I decided I wanted to keep a separate blog about my cake/cupcake endeavors. I'll still share on here from time to time my different creations...but I use this blog mainly for family and friends and I'm sharing the other blog with EVERYONE...so I'm trying to keep the two apart. Check it out and let me know what you think :)
I have another cake order this weekend, a fathers day cake...from a lady that found me through my blog, yippeeee!! Marketing at its best, lol. Then the following weekend I have a house warming party cake. Between riding and cake making, I'm enjoying life!!!!!
