Wednesday Workout: Ski Your Age in Kilometers

There are many things that “get better with age,” such as Ford Mustangs, select cheeses and cowboy boots. While society doesn’t usually place workouts in this category, Chris Osgood and his son Brayton may be changing that. The father-son duo celebrate Chris’ birthday every year by rollerskiing his age in kilometers. They most recently did 60.

60 for 60: A Birthday Tradition for the Osgoods and Co.

Celebrating a birthday often involves cake, candles, and a bit of singing. Not so for Chris Osgood and his son Brayton who participated in what they called the 60 for 60 rollerski on Nov. 16. Every year since turning 30, Chris has rollerskied his age in kilometers, culminating in this year’s ski. Bucking the traditional birthday merriments, he celebrated his sixth decade by rollerskiing 60 kilometers.
