Face Plant

I had a big accomplishment last weekend. I got up wake-boarding for the first time. The only thing is, that once I got up, I didn’t want to be up anymore. I wanted to be in the boat, where it was safe. The older I get, the more I realize what a scaredy-cat I am when it comes to sports where you can hurt yourself… which is also a hindrance to me ever getting better at those sports. Love land, hate pain. That’s my new mantra, and here’s the visual:

Not too bad… outside the wake (although I never could figure out how to get back inside the wake)… but I don’t look too scared, right? Now look at this up close and personal.

GET ME BACK IN THE BOAT! Is what I’m thinking.

And then? Faceplant. Ouch. Nothing like shaking your brain against your skull. Not to worry. I’ll try it again, but next time I’m wearing a helmet.
