Haha… really we went snowboarding last weekend.
I think, without planning it, my new year’s resolution is doing things I haven’t done in years. First it was knitting, now it’s snowboarding.
The last time I went, many moons ago, I had finally mastered heel side snowboarding. I hear some people call it heel side falling leaf or the heel side glide. Whatever you want to call it, that was what I was able to do. Toe side was a whole different matter. Everytime I switch to my toe side, I wouldn’t last more than five seconds without my face planting in the snow. Getting off the lifts was even worse. Haha.
Surprisingly, I felt more comfortable on my first run this past weekend than I ever had in any of my first runs in the past. But I never got comfortable enough to go full speed (my full speed) in any of the subsequent runs. Seriously, I think as I get older, I get more cautious. I was cruising so slowly that it was painful watching the video KT recorded of me. It was like, “is she there yet??” Painstakingly. Slow. Motion.
Nonetheless, I had fun. Even Diana learned with the help of Lauren and Susan! Can we get a HURRAH! (I think the military have been on my mind lately =)).
Afterward, we went to Donut Man for its famous fresh strawberry donuts and tigertail twists.
