Partially because I am in a reflective mood tonight and partially because of the insomnia I am currently experiencing, I just re-read every single post I’ve written here from start to finish and realized that while I’m loving skijoring I also really miss scootering and canicross. Can there be such a thing as being homesick for the scooter? My dictionary informs me that homesickness is “experiencing a longing for one’s home during a period of absence from it.” So can I be… scootersick?
Whatever you want to call it, I’m actually quite pleased by this realization; it means that as the weather warms and the snow melts I won’t spend the off season feeling like it’s an “off” season at all. Rather than feeling like I’m killing time with a consolation prize, I have something to look forward to enjoying on its own merits. Not the off season at all – just scooter season instead of skijor season. And hopefully at the end of scooter season, no matter how much fun I’ve had I’ll realize I really miss skijoring and will look forward to enjoying it again on its own merits, too.
