Fear vs Living

Things have changed a lot since I was a kid. We never wore a seatbelt, or a helmet. I now wear a helmet when riding my bike and my seatbelt when in a car. I am sure I would be dead had I not been wearing my helmet when I broke my nose. His comment though made me consider what it would be like if we hid inside, living our lives vicariously through movies or video games, so that we don't risk injury. A very sad thought but practically true for some.

Anyway, I have decided I much prefer living an active life, than sitting around being scared I might get hurt.

    I've already been hurt at the park now - I'm the guy with the beautifully sprained ankle from the table tops. Just over a week later, still limping on my bad ankle, however, I was up there again, going off the ladder drop at the bottom of the Juniper Trail. Thanks for the bike park, guys! I'm 27 years old, an inexperienced rider, and I'm learning the same way I learned to ski as a kid... through trial and error!
