The Ambassadress of Roller Skiing
It was a hot hot morning and I was perishing from the heat by the time I finished my workout, but I got it done: two times the big hill, 13:30ish each, two times the medium hill, 7:45ish each. No speed records were set today, but it was perfectly fine for a hot day in August. Walking back down the hills after each repeat is kind of a drag, but I drank up the flowers and gobbled the blackberries, all warm and sweet in the sun ... and smiled at the kids who ran up to me and said, "Whoa, that is so cool!" If only I were so cool in my everyday life.
My goal was to get back to my car with muscles worked and water bottle empty; done and done. Winter is still a long way away, but I can see it out there, looking at me out of the corner of its eye, challenging me.
