A motorbike, that is. It’s a bit of a stretch, I know, but think about it for a moment. Both sports can be dangerous, as almost anything fun can be. Doing either one simply for the love of the experience is worth the risks when you love what you are doing, but you can minimize those risks by improving your skill set. Take professional lessons.
The year I was to turn 50, the triathlon came to town.
When I was 18 my life took a turn. I was forced to grow up quickly and figure out things on my own. Some things were within my control while others were falling through my grasp. I was working three jobs; serving at a local chain restaurant in the morning, nannying during the day, and retail at night. If I didn’t work all three, I made sure to pick up an opening or closing shift at the restaurant.
