Since Monday was my last day off before I had to head back to school, I decided that I needed to go out with a bang, so, the night before, some friends and I made some quick plans to go snowboarding. I rounded up some snow clothes and decided that I that it would probably be wise to go to bed a little earlier than normal since we were going to leave at 4 in the morning. However, when you've been going to bed at 3am for almost three weeks, it's really hard to go to bed early. I think I got a solid 45 minutes of sleep before my alarm woke me up to get ready to go. Surprisingly, I didn't feel that tired managed to stay up for the entire 4 hour car ride.
We finally pulled up to Sunrise and we were all surprised to see how few cars were there; the mountain was practically empty. We all started layering the clothes on, strapped up, and headed toward the ski lift.
I hadn't been since last year so it took a second to get back in the feel of things. then, Beecher tried to teach me to go on my toe side. I started to get the hang of it after a few runs, but I fell back on my butt so many times I lost count. On my last run, I hit it so hard I honestly didn't think I was going to be able to get back up haha. That's when I knew I had to call it quits. I headed back to the car to take some medicine and wait for the boys to go down the mountain a few more times.
Finally they came knocking on the window, we threw all of our snow clothes into the back of the car, and started the drive back home. It was a crazy long day and my body is sore in places I didn't even know it was possible to be sore, but it was 100% worth it. I can't think of a better way to spend my last day of break or better people to spend it with.
