What a fantastic weekend! My friend Jordan invited several of his friends and I to spend the weekend in Whistler, B.C. I had never been there but had heard many great things. I am so glad I went! The beauty is indescribable!

This was my second adventure with skiing. Like the first time it didn't go well. I either just don't have the knack for it or I should take lessons. (I'd like to take lessons) I really want to be able to ski!
It wasn't long into the day when I had taken one too many falls and I had to head back to the chalet. But it was so much fun to see the mountains, the snow, all of the wonderful skiers. I can't wait to get better at skiing so that I can go back!

As it turns out Jordan knows some very talented people! His friends spent two days back country skiing! WoW! And I can't even make it down the bunny hill without falling. But they were all wonderfully fascinating and I thought it was really neat to be able to spend time with people who have such deep passion for the outdoors. P.s. they are all crazy awesome rock climbers too!
I am so glad that Michelle was there! She made it seem like it wasn't a big deal that I kept falling all over the place. She kept my spirits up for sure! Then she managed to go down several green slopes and even a blue on her first day of skiing, ever! Go Michelle!
Even after several falls and banging up my knee pretty well, I still managed to go for a 4 mile run after we got home Sunday, so I am pretty happy about that. Can't wait to get some longer runs in!
Keep on Running!
