A week or so ago the three youngest were at Grandma’s. It was –41* below and Emily talked Grandma into taking them for a walk across the street to the pond just so “they could say that walked when it was that cold”. Crazy!
Today it’s –30.5* here at the house and I have absolutely no desire to go for a walk just to say I did, but I bet when I was a kid, I would have. In fact, it wasn’t too many years ago (20) when I was willing to ride a snow machine for a couple of hours to get to a cabin where it was –60* just to party for New Year’s Eve. Funny how age changes a person (or at least me).
All the time I drive past people skiing, running, bicycling in these temperatures and I just shake my head. I don’t have that kind of adventure in me. How about you? Would you get into extreme weather exercise/activities?
