Snowstorm

Paritally torn MCL or not, you know I CAN’T miss what could be the biggest snow in Seattle in years. I HAD to go play in it… thus after spending what was essentially Friday night- Sunday afternoon in bed, I went to snowboard in my Newcastle neighborhood. I hiked all the way up this one hill where my friend lives which I thought would be a decent hill to board on…

It seemed like at least a 15 min hike up the hill with a bad knee in snowboarding boots but I made it…

The result:
20ish seconds of “fun”.  I put fun in quotes cuz after coming down the hill I realized a fatal flaw in my logic in doing this. There is a reason why we all pay $50 or whatever for ski lift tickets. Any hill that’s steep enough to allow you to board down, probably isn’t worth the hike up. By the time I got up this hill I was tired as hell and sweating like a mofo. And it was barely steep enough for my to board down. Barely. I didn’t get good speed and had to really work to keep myself going :p

So after just one run, I went straight home, took a shower cuz I was sweating like I just played 2 basketball games,  made a bowl a ramen, and sat down to watch football.
