We did many great things last year and spent time with so many people that we love and who love us. For me, everything happened with a huge dark cloud hanging over, sometimes enveloping me and sometimes farther off in the distance. Riding was one of the few ways I could get out from under my depression. Off the bike, it would creep back filled with fear and insecurities.
I'm ready for this year and I'm ready to continue moving in the direction life takes me.
I've decided to use this photo to represent my entire 2013 because to me, it signifies strength and adventure--two things that I look forward to having more of this year.
