Rollerblading in the rain!

*Update: For those of you waiting for pictures from my bike race in Canmore, wait no more! ---> Here they are!!! <---

Last night, Collin an I decided to eat in (I BBQ'ed. Jenny, I really need my spices!) and then go for a nice rollerblade in the river valley. We could see a big black cloud off too the West in the distance, but decided to go for it anyways. We managed to get all the way to Eau Claire before the rain started to fall... at first it was just lightly spitting, but shortly after that it started coming down a lot more heavy and constant! I was really scared that one of us would loose our footing and pull a groin so I totally slowed down my pace once the path got really saturated with water. Poor Collin was complaining about his left knee almost from the moment we stepped out on the pavement... He said he's felt this same pain before, but it's been 10 years since he was last on rollerblades! He's not exactly sure what he did before to make the pain go away.

When we got home, we were both wet and cold! Collin poured a hot bath for himself and he soaked his poor leg and back for a while. Poor guy! I don't think the bath actually did much for his pain. I asked him if there was anything I could do to help make the pain go away... and he suggested cutting off his leg. (Eeeek! It must hurt pretty bad!)

However, despite his pain, Collin did say (as we were driving home from the park) "I've been looking for a girl like you all my life! Someone that likes to get out and do stuff, and isn't afraid to get a little sweaty." :) That comment made me super happy! (This makes me think that we have more in common then I originally thought!)

I know the pain his knee feels when on rollerblades, they are hell on weak or hurt knees, Just stick to bikes they are theraputic for soothing the knees plus better brakes too !!
