Curling! Yes you heard me right, I tried #curling!
I had the opportunity to participate in a #cultureshock activity with a local organization, Communities First, Inc. They plan different activities throughout the year, usually activities you wouldn’t normally do. This is a great way to try something you may have been curious about, but have never had the opportunity.
I think we can all agree that #curling isn’t something that was on my radar.
We arrived at the Midland Curling Club where the instuctors were very patient with our group of novices, 25 of us that is.
I think we all assumed it couldn’t be that hard….Boy were we wrong! This sport is all about balance and lower body strength, if you don’t have either one, you’re in trouble!
Needless to say, after falling a few times, I was able to finally release the rock (the round object you slide down the ice), one good time without falling. I would have never thought this would be a fun sport to try, now that I have, I would certainly do it again!
What’s an activity you have been curious about but never tried? I would love to hear about it!
Step outside of the box and try something new!
Have a great week!
