Postscript to SPIRITRUNS blog on rollerblading & biking...
Monday, August 24, 2009
I didn't get near the pictures she did - trying to stay upright was difficult enough!! Let me just say, that woman is crazy!!! She TUCKED going down the hill!!! Are you kidding me???? Now, first of all I should have had some protective equipment on but the roller blades were my daughters & of course she's too "cool" for that - not to mention really good at rollerblading, but anyway....
So granted it wasn't a big hill , but still...I had visions of hitting a stone or stick & landing on my face, halfway down I figured there was way more padding on my butt and I was going to use it!! Sweats are now in the garbage, no salvaging those but they were getting baggy anyway & it still beats the heck out of scraping pavement with my face!
Next time (& there will be a next time) I'm going to tuck - I'm also going to get my own roller blades - my feet were so sore by the end - and protective gear - as padded as my butt is it still HURT!
But it was still FUN! Such a great way to spend an afternoon - the "Spark Gals of Georgian Bay" gang is growing!!
Yay to Pamersby for biking the whole way - talk about jumping right in!
And SPIRITRUN... what can I say??? Picture has a thousand words!!
And of course, our stalker of the day, SPIRITRUN'S hubby for watching out over us - I KNOW he got some serious laughs in watching our performance - no doubt about it!
