I've caught the bug. After living in Utah for 4 years, and wondering constantly what the draw of owning a boat and going boating at any available opportunity was; I understand. My awesome friend Angela, who I know from Crossfit, but have discovered that she is way more fun than just having as a gym friend, invited me out for a day of boating. There were several of her firefighter friends, and a bunch of our friends from the gym, and it was such a fun day! We went out on Utah Lake, which was perfect, because it's only a few minutes away from our house, so time from leaving the house to time on the water was roughly 25 minutes. You can't beat that! After getting into the water, it's only a matter of minutes before you have free access to open water and all the wave surfing you desire! I was really nervous the first time we went, because it had been years since I had tried to do anything that required me to be towed by a boat. :) I was lucky that I had a boat full of great teachers, and I was able to get up almost immediately! It's incredible the difference that Crossfit has made in all aspects of my life, because I guarantee if I wasn't as strong as I am now, it would have been a lot more difficult. We had a fabulous day out on the boat, and I was thrilled when only a week later, I received another invite to go again! This time, Jason and Hazen came with us. We went out with Ang and her little boy, as well as another friend, Alaina, and her little girl. these two Mama's are AMAZING, and they were able to surf with their kids on the same board. Super awesome! It is so much fun to get out and do something so different than what I experience during the day to day, without having to travel very far away from home! I can't wait for next summer, and I hope we can go boating plenty more!
