HERE'S HOW PATHETIC (or, could it be cool?) I am. In order to get back in the spirit of hockey, and because of the upcoming Olympics (which will feature lots of hockey and speed skating), I've begun skating in my garage. Not real skating, of course, but 'exercise' skating. Since it has been far to cold to hit the bike I've been mock skating with weights behind my back in an effort to maintain some amount of physical fitness. I 'skate' for about 5-8 minutes --- at which point the muscles in my thighs feel like they are going to break through my skin. Julia brought the camera down because, and I quote her directly here, 'if I don't take a picture, no one will believe me when I tell them you are doing this.' It occurs to me that she might be right...so here you go:
And I'm wearing the cap because it's freezing in our garage.
