Yes this is completely random but we do random things sometimes when we travel. Let's just say Wednesday was a lonnnng day full of travel and meetings. In between two meetings my co-worker and I had about 45 minutes so we went to the local mall. I can't tell you how many malls I've been to on the east coast since I started traveling. Some amazing like Short Hills and King of Prussia, some terrible but I won't name those!
In we walk to the mall and we see these high school gals power jumping. Yall know what I mean? You get on this trampoline and these bungy lines and it takes you about 50' in the air. I dared my co-worker to do it (mind you, we're both wearing our suits) and she was like okay. Haha! So she did.
Then she made me! Here I am getting strapped in.
Honestly it was a really weird sensation. The high school girls were doing flips and all this other stuff. No way! It freaked me out....I don't like not having control. Plus in college I used to calculate the stress on those bungy cords! So I was very skeptical.
Then the harness started hurting my legs and I decided it probably wasn't worth it to injure myself because I can't afford for my running to be over. So I stopped. Haha, what a wimp I am!
Anyway, it was pretty fun and I'm glad I at least tried it. I do have video but I won't grace you all with that. It's foul.
Some other adventures we've been on together while traveling for work - riding the bull (again in our suits after a big meeting), skiing, snow tubing, ice skating.
At the end of the day, you only live once, right?!
