Okay, so the female protagonist in my WIP practices yoga. And Chris, my male protagonist, would be a runner. Yin and yang, you know? But then I thought, how about a more interesting sport? So I googled "obscure sports," and sure enough the internet delivered. I discovered the U.S. Association of Rock Paper Scissors and the World Finger Jousting Federation, among many others. But I think my favorite obscure sport has to be Extreme Ironing. Their website, called the Extreme Ironing Bureau (heh, heh), calls extreme ironing "the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt."
There's synchronized extreme ironing cycling:
Underwater extreme ironing:
And mountain climbing extreme ironing:
On second thought, I think I'll just leave Chris as a runner.
