So about that bucket list I talked about a few months ago, well, I’ve finally decided to add something to it. Back when I was in high school, I could run the basketball court doing back handsprings and back tucks. And now, at 35, I see myself doing things through yoga that I wasn’t able to do in my teen years, which leads me to believe I can still very much do all those things. It’s just getting over the mental hurdle of throwing yourself backward toward the ground and trusting your body will know exactly what to do in that situation. So, I’m going to add going to an adult gymnastics class to my bucket list because I want to prove to myself that I’m still very capable of being able to fly like that. Because, really, that’s what it is. Taking flight. And the only thing grounding me right now is me. If anyone has any suggestions for a good adult gymnastics class around Miami, hit me up. Or, better yet, come with me. We can blast off together. Sans shoes though. Gymnastics is a barefoot sport. But how awesome are these boots from Ecco? As I mentioned yesterday, if you need a shoe alternative to those god forsaken wedge sneakers, here ‘ya go. Find them and a slew of other options at Ecco online.
