Re: [RC] one giant step closer - Carol Suggs

Jen:  Just take baby steps.   You didn't say what has caused your fear, but
whatever has caused it you might find that it will take you awhile to
overcome it.   Make sure that you are well hydrated and that you don't ride
on a totally empty stomach as if you have some anxiety issues those symptoms
might be increased.  I aways drink water before I go out and always have a
power bar or granola bar handy.  Do lots of deep breathing and make sure you
are as relaxed as possible...and remember, its ok to get off and walk.  Keep
us posted!

Happy trails.

Hi, my name is Jen and I am new to R/C--I have been reading but this is my
first post and it is to everyone.  I need to share that I have finally
ridden  ALONE on a trail ride this weekend.  I literally rode for about 20
minutes, but I was alone and out of the arena!!!!!!  I don't know where my
fear has come from, but I long to do endurance after being a vet scribe
two years ago.  My fear has held me back, but no longer.  This week I will
trail ride with a friend and then ride alone again next weekend.  I would
appreciate everybody's input.  Especially ways to deal with fear and
overcoming it.
   I will be looking for a mentor next...I live in far, far northern
california on the coast.
thanks in advance,
Jen Murrell
