I get the impression that T Nation is full of people with cool hobbies. And it’s kind of sad to meet lifters who perpetuate the myth that we must “live in the gym” and obsess over food in order to be fit.
So let’s see your interests. Share as many pics as you’d like doing things outside the gym.
Hiking: It’s a summertime must in this area. I’m too much of a sissy to hike when it’s cold and there’s snow on the ground. (The dogs don’t like to get their paws cold either. LOL.) Also, many of the trails are closed off in the winter. So 'tis the season to take a hike every week.
Self defense: I’ve taken multiple firearm classes and have joined a women’s club. I’m a noob in this area, but want to learn more and be as prepared (for anything) as possible. I have another conceal carry class scheduled later this month and have worked one on one with a few instructors. I’m so hungry for more knowledge on firearms that I welcome any tips from other gun owners. (And yes, I’ve been lurking/learning in all the forums that address this topic.)
I love everything about that picture and am always impressed by people who can ride with their dogs. You’ve got such a sweet pup and amazing views!
We’re too afraid of our dogs touching the moving spokes or getting hurt in some other way. They also pull on our leashes pretty hard at the first sight of rabbits and squirrels, and we’re not prepared to get jerked around while on bikes. Maybe we’re just being sissies or we need someone to train us how to ride with dogs.
