Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea). Oregon

Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea). Oregon

If I came to an uphill


and I didn’t pedal harder

I would cease making


I am outracing no one

including myself.

I guess when my

strength and readiness

for the steeper hills


they will seem as

easy as level, or

even coasting, downhill.

Lifting heavier

weights than I’m

accustomed to

increases strength.

So maybe I’ll have to

go out of my

comfort zone,

risking “mistakes”

or “failures” (i.e. not

getting what I

think I want), to

improve my game

& feel less frustrated

that I didn’t do


when I could have.
