    How many of you have gotten up before dawn, driven to the coast, gotten on a long piece of fiberglass and paddled into the ocean before turning around to ride back to shore?

    All the time as a kid living in Puerto Rico. Not so much since moving to Chicago.

    For those who are easily bored and need extra motivation to follow through, a sport like surfing or back country hiking is good exercise; because once you're in, you're deeply committed endure whatever trials are required to get back. It's not like spin cycling or tennis where you can easily call the day at any point.

    Team sports are the same. I play field hockey and there are 10 people that need you on the pitch and working hard. Plus there is me being a little bit competitive 😛
