For those of you that don't follow me in Buzz, I wanted to share this article:
I think it's a very good look at "risk" activities. It certaintly describes me, even though I'm not in the typical group (male). It explains a lot about my life, both past and present. I was often bored in school, but fortunatly did not turn to drugs etc as I was lucky enough to find other thrills that risked life and limb.
As endurance riders, aren't we all managing a level of risk? As *most* endurance riders are female, and I *think* (or at least my impression is!) in their 40's-60's, we wouldn't fit into the typical profile outlined in the article. Very interesting.
