Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently
I think I might be boring. I noticed, as I pulled up today's photo challenge, that so many of my answers come back to the same thing. Daniel, my girls, my parents, teaching, and running are featured over and over again. I honestly don't have a whole lot of other desires or things that impact my life. So, for today's challenge I posted a picture of my running shoe.
Running in general has had an impact in my life. I am more excited about exercising when I think about running, and I have learned so much about myself through the sport. Daniel and I both found we enjoy running when we joined the gym almost a year ago. He is much better at it than I am, but that's okay. We are still able to run together as well as independently. That is the really neat part about running; if you want a partner great, otherwise there is no need to wait for someone else's time schedule.
The reason I chose these shoes as my picture for today is that they have really changed the WAY I run. I feel GREAT in this pair of New Balance 760 stability shoes. I've only run in them about five times, and every time I do my pace improves or I learn something new about the way my body works. You can read more about how these shoes have impacted me here.
In a way I am happy that I don't have too many dreams and desires that haven't been met. I am content in life, and if a pair of running shoes is what has impacted my life the most lately, I'm okay with that. Not too many people can honestly say their lives are what they always dreamed of. Mine is pretty darn close.
What has impacted your life recently? I mean, really impacted your life. You, personally.
