The 30 Day Triking Challenge with Sonia Guy Day 4
I went out for about an hour this morning. It was early and a little chilly. It felt so good to be out there. It seemed like the whole world was starting to wake up outside. Horses were in their meadows eating their field grass and I saw evidence that some of my neighbors took them out for a ride last night. Maneuvering around their droppings is no big deal around here. I saw one of my neighbors out for a walk, dressed like he was going out to lunch. It really doesn't matter what you look like as long as you're out there. Or so I hope, because I just rolled out of bed and went out this morning.
I felt like singing a gospel song as I rode. The world was beautiful. I love to watch the birds fly in formation overhead or the little birds conserve their energy and fly low to the ground. Birds are amazing. The children and I have been studying zoology for about a year now and we love birds especially. I felt so free when I was out riding, like I was soaring through the fields. It really is a great feeling to be out there on my trike. You should get out there also, while the weather is accommodating!
