Today I took my 11year old son to a paintball facility for the first time.
I'm a 47 year old male at 5'7" and 175 lbs.
My work is physical and demanding at times.
I thought I was in pretty good shape.
Since I was new to this sport,I went small time and easy.
I chose not to go with the big urban combat zone where all these guys were decked out with the high tech stuff and clothes.
So,we chose the small arena with the blow up barricades.
My son and I are against a couple of 13 year olds.
I "killed" them over and over again,but I was exhausted and they finally took me down.
I know,unfair advantage for me being an adult and all,but there were other son/father or daughter teams out there,so I didn't feel so bad about it.
It was a totally fun experience and a small peek into what situations you could face .
Looking forward to the zombie Apocalypse they have planned for Halloween.
