Reading and writing seem like such inactive activities. Just sitting and reading or writing. But do any of you like to do sports?
These days, I enjoy hiking and walking long distance. I’ve walked 35 km in one day once, and many times between 10 and 15 km. That’s actually pretty normal for me now.
In the past, I’ve done a variety of sports. From 8 to 12 years old, I played hockey. My first year was as defence, while the other three years were at right wing. Around the end of elementary school, I started playing golf and skiing, as well. In grade nine, I joined the ski club at junior high school. I played a bit of volleyball, as well. But going into high school, I continued golfing, then mostly went on a break from pretty much any sport in university and after.
As for watching, I still enjoy watching hockey. I’m excited about Edmonton’s new arena downtown, and I’m looking forward to seeing the Edmonton Oilers play there starting next year. I also like watching the Olympics when I can. But while living in Japan, I developed a liking for sumo. I haven’t watched recently, but I followed many of the rikishi.
So how about you? Do you do or watch any sports?
