The folks at Dick’s Sporting Goods invited me to come shop one of their locations in my area. I was super impressed by all they have to offer. First of all, the store is HUGE! You can find pretty much any sports, fitness, or outdoor gear you might need. I took my husband and my daughter on my recent visit and we found some great items for the entire family.
I was very impressed by the entire shopping experience. My location has two floors with wide aisles making it easy to get around and see everything. I did not know exactly what I wanted to buy so I took some time to really walk the store and get a feel for what I might want that would also fit within my budget.
If you have a kid who plays a sport, you can find all the gear at DICK’s too! There were sections for soccer, lacrosse, baseball, and much more!
My daughter made a bee line straight for the girls stuff. She was very excited to pick something for our upcoming trip to Florida. She realized that her favorite Under Armour sandals from last year are too small so she picked a new pair. Here she shows off her new pedicure. She can’t wait to get on the plane.
She is also considering taking golf lessons this summer so she gave the putting green a try. My husband found a great sale on water bottles. These insulated bottles from Polar are our favorite! We’ll use them for family hikes, bike rides, and more. They are definitely coming with us to Florida too!
My husband also decided to get a new net for our home basketball hoop. He was very excited to give it a complete upgrade over the weekend. He repainted the hoop and hung our new net. He is so proud!
As for me, I struggled with making a decision on what to buy. I found one small item – a light-weight sun hat that will be great for my upcoming hiking trip to Utah. While I love the hat, I knew there was something still waiting for me to bring home. I loved all of the workout wear, especially the line called CALIA from Carrie Underwood, but I still had a feeling there was something else around the corner…
Then, I saw it…. something I have always wanted…. a BOSU. Not only a BOSU, but a PINK BOSU! I could almost hear the fitness angels singing. That baby was totally coming home with me! I still need to do a full workout, but it’s great to balance on while I meditate too.

I’m in the process of joining our local branch of the YMCA, where they have been so kind and generous as to waive all of my fees due to financial hardship (no income, and other current difficulties). While I do not need to lose any weight and am happy with my body, I am definitely “out of shape”– my endurance and strength are just not good at all. But I’m so glad to be joining, finally! I’m doing this primarily because of the mind/body connection. I need and want to boost my mood, and to feel better about my life. More specifically, to feel like I am capable of exercising (no pun intended!) more mastery over various areas in my life. I both want and need to feel more strong and clear, mentally, in order to move forward. …So, to [finally!] answer your question: I would like to buy a new pair of shoes. It would be symbolic to me. I’ve really been through hell in so many ways, and am still struggling every day. But with new shoes, I can easily see how I would be taking steps in a new, healthy direction.
I might buy a good pair of hiking boots or a quality backpack. They have a great selection.
