The Next [Next] Generation
This morning brought sunshine and another day of paintball biathlon to the Adirondack region! We headed out into the cold fueled on coffee and freshly baked banana bread. What more could one ask for?
Dewy Mountain hosted us this morning, and despite the rain and limited snow fall this past week they did an incredible job getting the trails set up for us! After organizing the largest assortment of itty bitty race bibs I’ve ever seen the families started to roll in one at a time. J5 after J5 came in with contagious grins plastered across their faces. I’ve never seen so many 8 year olds pumped to ski.
The kids didn’t seem to care about the cold, or the icy trails. They didn’t seem to mind the fact that skiing when your legs are that little must be really difficult, and sweaty, and uncomfortable… and probably incredibly awkward. (Maybe it’s just me, but skating has taken me a long time to feel more natural and less slippery)
We were all smiles, and excitement, and enthusiasm. At Dewy this morning flailing limbs were all the rage and gliding completely optional, and on top of that everyone had a blast. Race bibs were exchanged for high fives and lollipops.
Not a bad way to spend a Sunday morning. Not a bad way at all.
