Hey friends! I know some of you have noticed I've been changing the look of my blog. It's still in progress, bear with me, but I hope in the long run it's more visually appealing and more fun.
Have you heard of it? One of those new low-impact sports people are doing to get exercise in a fresh and, apparently, wet way. It's just what the pic shows on the right. You stand on a board in the ocean, or a lake, even a river. And then you paddle. You don't even have to have a destination, you can just go in circles.
I saw this in a magazine several months back and said, "I want to try that!" Why? I don't know, maybe I need more adventure in my life. The lady in the article picture, standing on the board, looked like one of those women I always wanted to be. Adventurous, carefree, healthy, someone whose hair was relatively unaffected by humidity.
Anyway, it looked fun.
I'd love to get exercise in a new, fun way. But (sorry, here come the excuses) there's a time and money issue, and the hair issue obviously. And...maybe I'm just not all that adventurous. I'll stick to the treadmill for now, but I'll keep you posted.
So how about you? Have you tried any extreme or even not so extreme sports for exercise? If you had the finances, or the time, or the movie star hair, would there be any sports you'd try?
