I was recently invited to a “Learn to Curl” session at the local ice rink. I had never really thought about attempting to curl, but then again, how often does an invitation like that come up? I decided to give it a go and invited others from my running group, Boise Area Runners. There is definitely a lot more to it than I gave it credit for. It feels like so many other finesse sports (golf, darts, even slacklining to some degree) where you occasionally do just well enough to convince yourself that with a little more practice, you could be great. Then another ten terrible attempts before another good one. With more time in my life, I could see myself getting into it. For now, I’m not sure if I need another hobby, but I’ll probably go back out again.
Here’s a video another runner made of the event. Don’t we look amazing?
