I love adventure, exercise and nature. So, I’m not quite sure why I was so surprised that I not only liked trail riding, I LOVED it! It combines almost everything I love into one activity. If you throw in a sunset, that just puts it right over the edge. The trails I’ve been riding are on the edge of the Florida Everglades so the sunsets area phenomenal.
As promised in my post about paddleboarding again (view here), I gave trail riding a try and I must say, it is quickly becoming a regular outing for me. As for rock climbing, I tried a local indoor gym and loved it. However, it will be a bit difficult to do on a regular basis as you need a partner to belay you. The only active person I know that is interested in rock climbing is my 16 year old son. Between school, football training, track training, track meets and theater/play practice, I doubt we will fit much climbing in (at least for now). I am going to try an outdoor rock climbing option at my daughters college and do a climb with her. We’ll see how it goes. More to come.
I must say, I love using nature as my gym. When I’m exercising outside, I feel invigorated and elated; I feel alive!
