Running Challenge Question: My Other Hobby

Christina, at Lazy Bones Running, asks "Besides running, what is your next favorite sport/activity?" This is a great question because it gives me the opportunity to talk about my other favorite thing. If you are a regular reader, you already know what it is, but here it goes - scuba diving. So, what have I been up to with scuba?

Well, I am pleased to say that I passed my Dive Control Specialist Exam with a score of 96%! It was tough, and Todd and I studied and studied and studied. I can tell you all sorts of things about diving physics, diving maladies and diseases, and more!

Tonight, I start my first Open Water Class. We do one open water class for observation, so I will go and observe the class, and help the instructor in the same way that I will when I'm a fully certified Divecon. I guess it's like a "dry run" of being with students. It should be good, but I'm a little worried because both the classroom and pool sessions are on the same night, which means I'm going to be out pretty late (Todd got home around 12:30am for his class in March). I think I'm going to prefer the classes where the pool and classroom sessions are on different nights.

We'll be going into the quarry in a few weeks, and that same weekend is our open water portion of our Divecon course. The other divecons will be doing a pool session for stress and rescue training in May, and it's on the same night as my class, so I have to make that up in June. We also have to take CPR and First Aid. So, there is still a lot left to the class.

We do also have some diving coming up in other places, for fun. I'll update you on those as they come along. I can't wait to get away again, especially after how busy the next month is going to be.

Thanks! It's one of my favorites of me underwater. It was taken in Turks & Caicos.

Wow! You're doing something I've always wanted to try, but have been afraid to. Maybe someday...have to build up the courage first ;-).
