I occasionally referee football matches, mad but challenging; whether it is a cycle ride on or off road, running for fun, skiing or even Pilates, I JUST LOVE IT!! My new challenge for 2013 is to complete a full marathon! I have entred the Virgin London Marathon in April, this will be my first organised race, scary..!!

A lovely run taking in the surrounding beauty of Moors Valley Country Park (link https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=pictures+of+moors+valley+country+park&client=safari&hl=en-gb&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=PNkuU7bMFsi10wX6n4DoBA&ved=0CEMQ7Ak&biw=320&bih=441 )I'm still finding that my legs were a little tight and heavy following a busy week on the slopes, put it down to work in progress : D

The American badger (Taxidea taxus) is the state animal symbol & a native species. The state seal has a badger on the crest. But the nickname of the "Badger State" actually is in honor of Cornish settlers in the southwestern part of the state. They were lead miners & worked underground in tunnels & the badger is a burrowing animal, thus the association. OK class, now who can tell me what else was named after the lead mines? Susie? That's right, the City of Galena Illinois is named after the lead ore they mined.

I don't know what happened to that thread. We had been talking about hard rock & heavy metal bands, with links to some videos of AC/DC, Judas Priest & some others.

I tried bungee jumping once at an amusement park in Myrtle Beach. You got into a cage hooked up to a crane, connected to the bungee cords, they hoisted you up, then GERONIMO!!!!!!!! Yes, it was quite a rush, & yes I jumped barefoot.

Falling on the ice like that would be bad, but I just meant falling into snow. On a dare I once ran outside in my bikini & jumped into the snow. It was powdery so no getting scraped up, but you can imagine how cold it felt!

Martin S and Eunice Y encouraged this.

.. blimey, you must have been freezing and nippy, lol :) Well it's Thursday and looking out from my balcony window it looks as if it's going to be nice again. Yesterday, our normal group was joined by some very accomplished skiers which meant that the day was very 'lively' totalling 56.4 kms of skiing, max speed recorded at 59 mph (99 kms) totaling a circa of 106 miles this week so far, I'm feeling very tired today. Have a beautiful day Meghan, I hope the weather has improved for you too :)

We were in the indoor pool area at a hotel, sitting in the jacuzzi & sipping a few while looking at the snow out through the windows. Saw a door leading outside, & soon "Meghan, I dare you to run outside & jump in the snow." Had I not had a couple I probably wouldn't have taken that dare, but well, you know... I did have the presence of mind to be sure the door wouldn't lock shut behind me. The lobby door would've been a long cold run in a bikini & bare feet.

First day, leg burning, top speed today was 34.5 mph (circa 50 kms) so beautiful , skiing in so hot conditions is very tiring... Xx

Thank you so much, I hope that I can remember how to do it...a wise friend of mine gave full assurances to me recently, "it just like riding a bike"....hmmm, not sure about that, lol !!
