Today, I skateboarded for the first time in months. At first I was a little sketchy and thought "I'm gettin' too old for this". A couple blocks later I realized that- it's just plain fun to roll around on fours wheels and a plank of wood.
Coincidentally, I finally signed up for a family membership to the local YMCA today (a hidden gem of south St. Louis) and found out that admission to their skatepark is also included. The place is only six blocks from our house and isn't just a lame excuse for a skatepark- it's radical. See the photo below.
