Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to the Pasadena archery park with my cousin Omar and Adam. Omar got into archery sometime last year and he was nice enough to take us to where he usually shoots and let us try it out. It was a really fun experience for me since I have never shot a bow and arrow before. Omar was very patient with me, as I got the hang of it. I was pretty surprise on how well I did for my first time. Drawing the bow was a bit hard for me, but not once did the string hit me.
I really like the whole idea of picking up archery as a hobby. It’s fun and at the same time you get a really good back workout. I do need to practice on my form and I need to get more upper body strength. I’m not sure if it’s something we will pick up in the future, but I had a lot of fun and I would not mind doing it again some time.
