So there I was, slowly making long, wide turns as I skied down a slope in Bulgaria on my honeymoon over New Year's 2012.
I was trying to keep up with my new hubby Sean (a professional snowboarder) on my first ever powder day. I was — at the time — a novice skier who grew up skiing on tiny hills in central Wisconsin. After meeting him, let's just say my learning curve was steep.
I'd just barely come to a stop next to him on the side of the slope before the words escaped my lips: My quads are on FIRE! His response stuck with me all these years...
"Mollie... that feeling you have in your legs? We like that feeling."
And with that, he rode off — effortlessly — through the choppy, powder-mogul-covered slope.
My quads hummed, but I laughed as I considered whether or not this was a feeling I could ever... enjoy?
