I will be rolling out as this posts, on a 100k supported ride with several of my strong friends.
I know I’m going to be strong enough to not only finish the ride with them, but I’ll do it with a smile on my face, wishing it was a bit longer.
I worked hard for that confidence. I busted my ass for it.
Sadly for me, confidence wasn’t some mystic talent that I didn’t have to work for. Fitness confidence wasn’t a biological gift or even a part of the way I was brought up.
Confidence had to be earned. There is a world of difference between “I think I can”, “I know I can”, and “Let’s ride”.
Ride hard my friends, you know I will. Life won’t be any longer than it is right now.
