Exploregon: Fitness Fun

I sat around for most nights during my 1st week, and I got sick of it quick.  The Portland area rains like crazy throughout the year so I couldn't go out and jog or shoot some hoops (there's a basketball hoop in the parking lot).  So I was looking for something active to do at night (get your mind out of the gutter heh) and I kinda missed swimming when I was in Santa Rosa. 

I found this pretty sweet community center about 2-3 minutes away from my place with a swimming pool, so I decided to check it out.  Turns out, it's equivalent to a YMCA so it also has a weights room, an indoor basketball gym, and even table tennis!  So I have a membership there now, mostly for the swimming.  The coolest part of the swimming pool is that they have a water slide indoors!  They also have a pretty big whirlpool, and a separate lap pool.  So far I could only swim 200m before I collapse and plummet to my doom :P
