This just happened today.


I ordered inline skates.

Asphalt is soft right?

I am 41 years old and I am going to take up skating. On a hard surface. With wheels. That move.

I actually used to inline skate in my 20’s. I was hot stuff skating for miles and even doing some tricks like jumping over fallen garbage cans and parking bumpers. It was great exercise and I really enjoyed it.

20 years later I am still in great shape but things have changed. Body parts have settled. Coordination has slowly degenerated.

But I am up for the challenge! I endured childbirth, I probably won’t even notice a few falls on the street….right?

When it comes to getting active, there really aren’t any rules and each person is different. What motivates and excites one person, doesn’t interest another. Physical limitations come into play as well. We are all different and while some people wouldn’t in a million years get back on inline skates in their 40’s, some of us look forward to a new activity.


But everyone can follow this mantra when it comes to getting active:




How you choose to do it is up to you!

    You’re braver than I am. After growing up skating with the traditional 4 wheel roller skates (which I was pretty darn good on), I never could get the hang of inline skates.

  2. Marisa says

    How fun! I would probably fall on my butt :) I am working hard in the gym though – 5 days a week of heavy lifting and it is paying off!

  3. Nicole Brady says

    What a great promotion. We work out at least 2x per week… except of course, this week so I can’t log anything. LOL. Maybe we can go out for a run tomorrow.

  4. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    I like to think I am moderately active, but I like incorporating new things into the routine every once in a while.

  5. Daisy says

    I haven’t tried inline skates. It sounds like fun! I typically go to the gym for an hour each morning after dropping my son off at school.

  6. says

    YAY KIM! As a 39 year old woman that skates I applaud you! Although I skate quads with Roller Derby. Next brandcation that I come to, we should go skating! Did you order pads and a helmet?

  7. Lisa Johnston says

    I would have to say…. asphalt tastes great, right?

    Body parts have settled! HAHAHAHA!!! Word!

    Looks like a lot of fun, and a great way to be active!
