Skiing at 65
Wednesday, February 24, 2010
OK, my sister & a few friends think I'm crazy! (And maybe I am!) But I actually had fun this past weekend. My hubby & I went to Okemo in Vermont with our oldest son & 3 grandchildren. Now, I've done cross-country skiing, but could count on the fingers of one hand the times I've been downhill. And that was years ago.
Boy, have things changed! No longer the long skis, but short stubby ones that are easier to control (sometimes). Our son had signed me up for a lesson, thankfully! If not for that, I might have spent my time in the lodge. My first time or two (before lesson), well, let's just say it's a good thing I bounce well!
We had fun, I got to spend time with the grandkids, and I got my exercise. What more could you ask?
