I went to Isle Of Wight for a press trip with Merrell who are a key sponsor of the White Air Extreme Sports festival. Ok, so I was at an extreme sporting event. For those that don’t know me you’re thinking what the f—? But those that do know me well, would just say cool! I’ve gotten away from sports since I moved to London. I still really miss dragon boating and my great team The Killer Bees!! I did get to go kayaking and it was so cool to be on the ocean, it feels so different then being on Lake Ontario. There was no wind so we were limited in our events but maybe that was a good thing? Anyway I got to go Mountain
boarding, which was great fun and sounds super cool!!! Of course I’m not sure about my look but somehow you don’t really care when you’re rolling/tumbling down a hill…I do have some very cool trainers that are made from Gore Tex (And yes Gore Tex is/was a really person Robert & William Gore) and they can get wet! I used to have these other little slip on shoes for water sports, they were good for not slipping but were very tight on the feet. Anyways these are much more comfortable – they look & feel just like a running shoe!
