Tried (fill in the blank) sport!
What's a sport you've always wanted to try? 🤔
Risk is my middle name, I'm a big adrenaline junkie and am constantly on the lookout for a greater challenge. Most people don't like trying new things because they hate being bad at something. I find it humbling and motivating when I'm a beginner. When someone tells me "that's crazy, that's not possible" I transmute that into fuel for motivation 💪
I watched a documentary on Netflix called The Alpinist a few months ago and was really intrigued by Marc-André Leclerc, who was a remarkable solo free climber. I've tried climbing previously, and my spaghetti cyclist arms struggle quite a bit with the challenges the sport presents. However, ice climbing ⛏ seems a lot more appealing to me and I'd love to try that someday, barring I gain enough upper body strength. Something about the danger, mental challenges and the constantly changing variables seems very enticing to me. The cold, total lack of knowledge and gear required are three major aspects that keep holding me back though ❄️
How about you, is there a sport you've been wanting to try? What's preventing you from doing it?
I've never tried kite surfing, wakeboarding, or wakesurfing. They just look like so much FUN, though I'm not a fan of wetsuits.
In the meantime, I'll continue to live those adventures vicariously through Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tetonsurfco
Would love to try cross country ski-ing/ Nordic ski-ing. Seems like a fun way to get around in winter. Slightly worried though that I would have loads of energy on the way out and leave none for the way back!
