This morning I got up nice and early and headed to the office. Today I had my Snowshoes with me. Yep, snowshoes. Yep, work. The place where I work used to be a horse farm and there is a large horse track. Since I’m in MA and there has been some on again off again snow around here there was a healthy covering on the ground.
While snowshoeing I listened to the audiobook “Always Looking Up” (aff link) by Michael J. Fox. I’m only about 45 minutes into it and it has already gotten a hold over me. Maybe it was being overtired, cold or maybe the book just affected me because I’ve always considered Michael J. Fox a hero of mine, but I got teared up as I walked around. Maybe it was the wind.
I’m going to go for another snowshoe tomorrow morning and this time I’ll have gloves, I forgot them, and poles, I think they would help me move much faster as I only made it around the track twice. This morning I pretty much broke my left snowshoe. I pulled one of the straps right out of it and had to try and jam it back in while standing in the deepest snow of the whole track. So tomorrow I’ll go back out there better prepared. I like that it is still nice and cold around here so I can actually do this.
I think I went out snowshoeing today in part also because I was jealous of my friend Courtney from Ride To Remedy.
Speaking of inspiration and inspirational books I awarded my signed copy of Gary Vaynerchuk’s Crush It to my friend Buck Daddy. I liked what he had to say about Crushing It in the new year. Since the contest was totally subjective on what I like it makes sense that this great guy gets this book.
