Here’s Episode 2, wherein I investigate whether the laws of physics are on my side.

The Cartwheel Project
What is The Cartwheel Project?
I’ve never been able to do a cartwheel and I really, really want to. So my quest—to do one, or to walk away with a definitive understanding of why I can’t—that’s The Cartwheel Project.
Do you realize how unflattering the videos are?
Oh yes. This is not the fault of the producer, Visual Story Productions, which is helmed by my kind husband, Chris Walton; it’s just what happens when you take an honest look at a genuine weakness. And as they say: no pain, no gain.
When will the next video be released?
We aim to release new episodes every 4-6 weeks. We need some wiggle room because: life.
The suspense is killing me. How can I manage my anxiety while I wait for the next installment?
Join the fun! If you’re willing to spend a minute on a short survey, please tell us if YOU can do a cartwheel.
Also, is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but can’t? If so, have you written it off entirely, or is there a chance there’s still time? Please send me your stories. As I spend the summer trying to turn my first cartwheel, it would be good to know what feats—large or small—the rest of you are tackling. I can be reached via email, Facebook, and Twitter.
