I’ve most often been the one who waits for others to jump into any activity before I take the plunge. More comfortable being a spectator than risk looking silly. But there came a time in high school when I grew bored with this default behavior. Here’s a guest post I wrote about what happened next, for my Association of Personal Historians colleague, Sarah White, for her blog. I was reminded of this story while traveling on the Coventry Rhode Island Trestle Trail.
