My Truths #71 (winter sports)

by Stephanie

Winter sports can be fun! I mentioned that I’m not a huge fan of the cold but there are some winter sports that are fun and very athletic. If you’re dressed properly and keep moving the cold should not be a problem. Alpine skiing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, skating… even sliding. If you don’t think that sliding is athletic then you probably haven’t done it lately.  Sure going down is easy but it’s over in seconds. Then you have to climb back up carrying your sled. You go sliding for an hour and most of that time is spent walking up hill. This can be a real workout! The steeper the hill the better… for both sliding and climbing. Wheee! Just don’t overdo it on the hot chocolate with marshmallows afterwards!
