It’s starting to feel a lot like Winter!

It’s starting to feel a lot like Winter in South Dakota. The temperatures have been fluctuating between 1 and 30 degrees. Instead of hibernating — as I usually do during Winter — I decided to enjoy the cold season and all that comes along with Winter.

My adventurous nature took me to Main Street Square in Downtown Rapid City, where I went ice skating and had a blast. Skating on ice took some getting used to, but after 15 minutes I gained more speed and confidence. Still, I’m no Michelle Kwan yet … I could use a little work on stopping and braking (thank goodness for the poles around the ice). After what felt like an hour, the skates started to hurt my feet and I was ready to call it quits.

I’m glad to say I tried something new and I didn’t fall or embarrass myself doing so.
