And then my mother-in-law dug out her old cross-country ski gear.
You'd think that growing up in a state that thrives on winter sports I'd at least have tried cross-country skiing. Nope. This was going to be my maiden voyage on skinny skis. I laced up the vintage boots, grabbed the ski poles and buckled myself in. So far, so good!
I really had no idea what I was doing out there. My only exposure to cross-country skiing had been messing around on my step-dad's stationary ski machine back in the 90's. Surprisingly, it wasn't that hard to figure out although I'm sure I looked like a hot mess as I attempted to gracefully ski across the frozen and snow-covered fields.
Luckily my parents-in-law live way out in the country so no one was around to witness the spectacle!
