We finally bought cross-country skis last week, and I’ve been waiting all week to take them out. Saturday morning, we met up with Jess and Sam at the Skokie Lagoons and spent two hours on the trails. I’m sore today! This afternoon, we finally mustered up the energy to walk the two blocks to the lake, with the intention of skiing along the lakefront. We soon realized that our part of the lake is sectioned off by several condo buildings, so we couldn’t go very far. Tomorrow, I think we’ll head out to the lagoons again.
