One of my passions is getting outdoors and enjoying it while also getting a workout in at the same time. I call it disguising exercise as fun. Although, just for the record, I don't usually go skiing in a crown and banner.
Well, I was lucky enough to combine my outdoor enthusiasm with a workout AND giving to the community at the annual Ski For Women, at Kincaid Park in Anchorage, Alaska. The event raises money and awareness for women's issues and charities. The several hundred participants were encouraged to dress in costumes and have fun while racing the 5km course.
I can only hope that my daughter will enjoy the outdoors and giving back to the community as much as I do... as you can see, she has no choice but to participate right now! I figure in another twenty or thirty years SHE can carry ME.
