As you probably know, I am sort of an outdoor sport nut but winters are usually pretty depressing for me. My summers are full of mountain biking, rock climbing, water sports, and camping, but my winters are not usually full of anything but dreaming of summer. My first winter love is skiing, but living in Sioux Falls, SD doesn't provide much opportunity in that area. Lately though, a new sport has caught my fancy and has consumed a little of my money and a lot of my time...Hockey!
I have been playing hockey with the students at the college lately and have really gotten hooked on it. I started out with meager skating abilities but have caught on quick and now love playing. It is a great workout, a chance to be outside and not in my office, and a lot of fun. In fact, I am playing this afternoon and can't hardly wait. Watch out Sidney Crosby...here I come!!
