My age is showing

We hit the slopes today.  I am most definitely feeling my age.  Now I understand thoroughly while the average age on the slopes is more like 22. 

It is seriously cold out here today.  10 degrees at the top, maybe.  I was freezing.  I boarded a few runs and my legs were burning, my toes were numb and I am not sure I was having much fun.  I much prefer the 45 degree ski. 

Also, we had the classic freak out.  Josh and Jess went out alone and then lost each other.  Josh came to the meeting place for lunch figuring we'd all be there…as we were.  Jessica went to the ski patrol ( who were beyond lame because they could have found us at the lunch spot ) and then eventually we were freaked and went to ski patrol too and found Jess.  Ugh.  Unfortunately cell phones do not work so well on the slopes.  I am going back out and buying walkie-talkies for March skiing. 

Going out again tomorrow, of course, but I am praying for warmer weather.  Emily said that I should stick to half days going forward.  She might be right.  Alas.
