Finally! I got that big white elephant out of the way! I had my cross-country-ski hill lesson today. It was cancelled last Sunday so I signed up to take the lesson today. I also signed up to go in the Van instead of driving myself. The whole day from beginning to end went well! After learning how to attack hills, we went on a short tour to put our newly learned skills to the test. Here's a shout out to the University of Calgary Active Living Outdoor Center and especially to the instructors I had for both lessons. I learned what I need to know and now I can get on with my life!
