As of today, January 11, 2014, I’ve already skied 42 days this season. I’ve been skiing so much that I’m behind on my quest to blog about it (…as you can see, I’ve only written about the first 15 days). However, I’d rather be out there skiing than sitting in here writing about it, and–anyway–writing also helps me with my skiing, too, especially since I’m a writer for Learnist, where I get to gather cool resources that ultimately help me become a better skier.
In my quest to ski 100 days this season, I hope to improve my moguls skiing. Moguls are, um, my nemesis. I hate them, and they hate me right back. But I don’t like being such a hater, so in my quest to improve, I created the “How to Ski Bumps Like a Rockstar” board on Learnist to both help me become better and to help me inspire others to love this challenging terrain.
All of this skiing has taken a toll on my body, and when I take rest days, I basically just sit around and write, walk the dog, and stretch things out. The “Staying Supple: Stretches for Downhill Skiers” board I created helps me remember what body parts need extra-special attention.
Thanks, Learnist, for keeping me motivated on and off of the slopes!
