"For nearly an hour, they shivered on the beach in bone-numbing cold. Kids burrowed their bodies into the sand, hoping to stay warm. Adults danced in place. Icy sprinkles of rain fell. Despite it all, they weren`t going to leave until they got what they came for: a cartwheel and a record.
In packs, they assembled on the Boardwalk at 17th Street to be part of history. Saturday would be the day the city broke a Guinness World Record for the "most people performing cartwheels at the same time."
Congratulations to the 1,086 fun-loving folks who took part in the record-breaking event!
Kids don`t play to reduce stress, lose weight, or as a form of therapy, they play for the sheer fun of it. A kid, who suddenly cartwheels, for no apparent reason, always brings a smile to my face.
Nothing symbolizes the carefree attitude of youth more than a cartwheel. Watching hundreds of children and adults performing cartwheels made me feel like a child again.
Watching this video has inspired me to try a cartwheel, I will go outside to my backyard and hopefully I can perform a cartwheel without hurting my back on landing on my head.
