Watching people get super gnarly at #bumblebomb was fun, but I had the most fun when I got to skate the tippy top of the mountain by myself. #arizona #skatetrip #mtgraham #raynelongboards #paristrucks #longboardgirlscrew #lgc #girlscanride @longboardgirlscrew
Love is a thousand things.
Love is flowing through my veins.
I step softly, carefully, tentatively.
It’s hard to get me out of the house.
I’ve been practicing,
opening my heart,
calming my mind,
counting my breaths.
1, 2, 3, 4,
one, two, three, four.
I still think about,
if you really loved me,
if part of you still loves me.
My heart has been growing.
I can’t wait to get back on the road and be on this mountain again next weekend for #bumblebomb. This post spring break week is gonna be rough. #skatetrip #roadtrip #sunset #arizona #mountains

Oh man. Mt. Graham was so fun.
Super nice, grip run at the top.
Super gnar, janky “techy” run the rest of the way.
I finally got a taste of what it’s like to take sweeping turns at speed. I didn’t push myself too hard though, as there weren’t any guardrails, and washing out in the sweeping lefts might mean falling off a cliff. I took it easy, half tucking and watching the boys take off ahead of me, eventually disappearing as they picked up speed faster than I did. It took some willpower not to tuck harder and try to catch them, like I usually do on the “beginner” home hills. I knew I wasn’t ready for that though. I’m still not, but I will be soon.
I had fun with myself though, learning how to shift my weight and shift my feet, while remaining steady, stable, and in control. My runs got progressively faster, and my legs got worked and sore in ways they never have before.
I dicked around a bit on the janky pavement too. It felt good to experience some different pavement, and practice sliding around on it a little bit.
Fuck. I just feel so good about the day in general.
I’m so proud of all the progress I’ve made in the past few months, and I can’t wait to see where the next few months will take me.
