Wahooo! I did it! I went ice skating!! I have wanted to do this for YEARS! I really don’t know why I have never done it but get this – I DIDN’T FALL ONCE! Who knew?!
Okay, I need to back up a bit. I went for my rainy run. It was that kind of heavy misting rain that ends up getting you just as wet as the giant drops. But that part wasn’t bad; rather the fact that my Snickers Energy bar was having an epic dance party in my stomach, that was the bad part! I still managed to do slightly over 4 miles in 43 mins and this included time walking up a hill when the dance party was at it’s peak. When I got back I was very pleased because a) I didn’t vomit all over Dobbins street and b) I ran into this guy:
After this, I had to boot-scoot to get ready. One of my staff members organized a fundraiser for her class at the ice arena and this is how/why we were going skating. Some of my staff came with me for moral (and physical!) support. I was nervous! What if I fell and someone came rolling by and sliced my fingers off? Yeah, I don’t know why but this has been a constant vision in my mind for as long as I can remember. Weird I am (there’s a lil’ Yoda speak for ya).
These are my “bad to the bone” gloves – they have a skull and crossbones on them. I know, totally makes me a BAMF. We all had a great time – I’m so happy we went. Here is a shot of all of us together.
