Did anyone else have Guns N’ Roses flashback this morning as they ran in the November Rain? Did anyone else ever experience a junior high dance moment when this song was played and you ended up in the longest dance embrace ever??!! Sometimes it was a blessing and other times it was painful? And what do you do during a slow dance when that odd fast beat starts? Wasn’t that the most awkward time? If no one else ever experienced this, I just gave you a glimpse into my junior high angst.
Speaking of angst, if you know me and my weather preferences today’s conditions hit two of my three most dreaded things – just above zero temperatures and rain. All that was missing for the trifecta was wind, thank goodness! I was glad that the hill was in relatively decent condition and we didn’t have to change things up. It’s a stressful situation when your backup plan, the Walter, was a skating rink!
Thank you to everyone who demonstrated their weatherproofness this morning and earned themselves the first of eleven NP Canada badges. Today’s badge was one of four culture badges – the tagging one. Your collection has begun! For those of you who didn’t make it out, don’t worry there are still 10 more badges up for grabs. All you have to do is #justshowup!
