The below is not a sponsored post. No compensation was involved. I simply adore my Kangoo Jumps.
And I can’t help it.
age grow up many things have changed.
I’m forced to be more responsible.
I’m compelled to get serious about my (finger quotes) career path (unFQ).
I’m (sometimes an accidental) role model for a little human.
Life is far more adult’y than I’d anticipated in the heyday of my youth.
youth. heyday facet is debatable.
As a result, this grown-up valiantly resists structure where she can.
When I shared the Child and I were spending her day off jumping (it rocked) many of you asked what the heck was on my feet.
Here are the details.
They’re called Kangoo Jumps (<—-not an affiliate link) and initially I was terrified of them. And intrigued.
I feared Id injure myself (hello no longer 25!).
I was afraid they’d go unused and I’d add to the house’s clutter.
I was fascinated by the clear fun-factor.
I wanted to know if, unlike unicycling, I could master.
Close to two years later I remain pretty territrigued.
The photo below is my face each time I lock my feet in the boots and ready to run ’em on the road
I’m a little afraid (will I break a hip?!) I’m really excited (tiny trampolines on my feets!) I’m inexplicably straining at the neck(?).
Next I laugh.
Every single time.
I’m aware how silly I look.
I am privy to the be careful! don’t break a hip! are you too old for this?! thoughts which BOINGING around my brain.
Kangoo Jumps make me laugh.
Loudly. (And apparently with my mouth open. Thank you nine year old photographer)
After the laughter dissipates I pause to visualize myself as a badass hardcore K–Jumper.
I’m ready to do this thing!
I can’t remember why I ever removed the Kangoo Jumps from my feet!
The rest of my jump time looks a lot like this.
Leaping down street.
Jumping on driveway.
Kangoo’ing around the house while the Child roller skates beside me (<—please to NOT to tell the husband that one. There have to be *some* perks to being a grown-up, right?).
I’ll wrap up this non-review review by saying I cannot recommend these highly enough.
If they’re a match for the way you, too, approach fitness—then you’ll adore them.
If reading this prompts you to think HELL! NO!–then they most certainly would gather dust in your garage.
