Cross Country Skiing

In the more recent years, my justification for doing things has changed [from exercise] to it being all about the photo op. Well, this day was a day of exercise but I did get a cool picture as well.


This was my photo op picture. It was difficult to get as my camera didn't like the cold! The next picture is of us girls. Three of us from work decided to have fun for a day. It was a ton of fun and now I have lots of bruising to prove it. Cross country skiing wasn't difficult but when I tried to make it become downhill skiing, it didn't go over so well. Its really hard for me to make corners with those big long skis. Oh what fun it was. It really works your hips, I found out. And by the end of the morning, I was using my arms to compensate for my naturally sore hips. My muscles were surprised to be used again :)

I am SO jealous! I want to try this. Is it as hard as skiing? (I can snowboard but can't ski worth a darn). This looks so fun.

WOW! I remember cross-country skiing once...and well, ONCE was enough for me! I'm a downhill kinda girl. Though now that you mention it, something a little slower would provide a lot of great photo ops!
