Bucket List + Shoes

This past week I had to opportunity to go to Fort Lauderdale Florida with my best friend, Christina and her wonderful family for the second time. The first time in Florida I was able to cross off *Go banana boating* from my bucket list, this time is was parasailing. Parasailing was a lot of fun and terrifying all at the same time. I had a death grip on the harness the entire time and may have screamed once or twice but I am so glad I was able go.

I created my Bucket List a little awhile ago. I always have ideas of doing things but never really follow through. I figured this list would help me remember the things I want to do as well as motivate me. If I never do some of the things on my list I'm sure I'll survive (irony) but its still exciting to think of completing this list at some point (and possibly adding more to it and I cross things off.)

So this past week I have been running about 35 minutes everyday. My previous shoes were really worn out and causing me to get blisters so my parents and I went to If the Shoe Fits (best shoe store) and purchased some new running shoes. That very day I went out running and noticed that my pace was much quicker and I had no more blisters! So I am pretty happy with my new shoes.

September 3rd is my first race. A 10K run and I can't wait!
