What Goes Up, Must Come Down

Posted on July 24th, by Amy in Me. 17 comments

Joe and I have been mountain biking lately. Riding the trails about 5 minutes from our house in the evenings. Getting to the top last night was a test, but the views were incredible!

I mistakenly thought this was the top, but we decided to go up a bit more, and this was our view before we started going down.

The downhill is so fun, yet focused. It’s nice to have nothing else on my mind while riding!

I did great until the very last switchback, (I was determined to make it around without stopping this time) I panicked and grabbed the wrong brake… Today I’m a little bruised and sore, and have a few bandages on my hand and knee, but I can’t wait to go back and do it again!

What’s your stress reliever?

  1. Amazing view! Sewing is usually my stress reliever, but if I’m angry at my hubby, and he is in the room with my sewing stuff, I usually pick a room and start scrubbing. If I’m scrubbing he knows I’m really mad.

  2. Workouts with my trainer and run/walks in the neighborhood are my stress relievers. Its amazing how a little fresh air and exercise can do wonders for your frame of mind. With my addiction to sewing after work, I would probably not see the light of day without those daily walks :)

  3. Good for you! Way to test your limits! That view is is amazing! Since I don’t typically have deadlines, sewing is my stress reliever. Smiles~Beth

  4. OH i can’t wait to move to Utah and see views like that. Wish it was tomorrow! You will make it next time without stopping, I know you will. Until then heal quickly.

  5. Lovely views. Reading or knitting is the best way for me to relieve stress, although when the weather warms up a good walk is nice too!

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

  6. On our way to visit our son in Park City next week! John and his girlfriend ride mountain trails in the summer and snowboard all winter….a touhc more active than me!!! Looking forward to seeing these beautiful views.

    Glad you were just bruised…and not badly injured

  7. Oh I would love to go riding with that view! My stress reliever is karate. I need to go every night, but lessons are offered no more than twice a week. :P
