Some of you may know and some may not, but I was a very active growing up and continued that through my uni years. Sports, dance, you name it I was enrolled until 3 years ago when I had an accident, that left me with a broken collarbone, a dislocated shoulder, and traumatized for a while. I thought all I could do from then on was to live in pain, suck it up and spend my time between sessions of chiro and physio.
I had come to terms that my active life was over. Such a defeatist attitude - I know. It took me three years to get it together again, and feel inspired by the Nike logo "Just Do It", along with their motivational twitter feed. So now I am back at it, I will probably have a lot of lows and pain, but you gotta start somewhere. I already feel so happy not to only use my sports gear for fashion, but also for their real purpose. Do you actually wear your gear for sports or just for fashion?
