Confession: the last time I skipped, I think I was 8 years old. But maybe I need to reconsider my mode of transportation. At least that’s what Charlotte’s Bill Martinelli, aka “The Skipper,” wants all of us to do. In fact, it’s what he does for a living.
The Skipper rediscovered the joys of youth while running on the beach with his girlfriend. He hated it, and since no one was around, he suggested they skip instead. And now it’s the only way he goes. I’m not sure if this is for me, but I’ve got to give kudos on trying to turn your passion into your livelihood. Martinelli’s business was ultimately banned for violating a sign ordinance, but he continues to skip away. What do you think? Could skipping be the new jogging?
