Just do it - I loved this slogan during my time as a student. It was so motivating. Especially since I tend to overanalyze many things.I just did it, again! I started ski touring at age 37.
Today on the mountain I met an elderly lady with a silver-grey bob and a wide smile on her face. I did recognize her from yesterday when I saw her on her skis, too. Tomorrow she will be up on the mountain on her skis, again.. 30 years from today I want to be just like this lady: happy, healthy and strong enough to go on a ski tour, walking up the mountains and enjoying a lovely winter day.
Winter used to be the time of year, we wished to be over soon. Not anymore!
There are many elderly people ski-touring. Retired men and smiling elderly ladies. Mr Paula and I kicked off this new hobby in our 10th year. It is a hobby we can grow old on together - ignoring global warming 20 years from today ...
PS: the sparkle of the icy snow is intriguing for anyone who falls for sparkling like I do :-)
PPS: right now there is discussion going on about ski-touring:
