An Unforgettable Experience

Have you ever planned to go to an event that you thought, “ok, this will be fun” and “why not, it’s something different to do” and it turned out to be an unforgettable experience? That’s how it turned out when my daughter and I  joined Lululemon at the Great American Ball Park for #runOMcincy. Unforgettable!

You could feel the energy as we approached the stadium. The weather was perfect and the people were friendly. The instructors were awesome!There was one instructor in particular that stepped up the energy and pace. She was my favorite! We also participated in setting the world record for the number of people doing simultaneous headstands. So cool.

Most importantly it was an experience I shared with my daughter.

I was surprised when Alyssa said she wanted to go. In the back of my mind I thought she would probably have a sleepover on Friday night, stay up late and not want to get up extra early on Saturday morning. And that would have been okay. What actually happened, no sleepover (that is unheard of!) and she was up on her own in time to leave. And, despite the early hour and not being a morning person, she was in a good mood.

Practicing yoga is the one time I’m about 99.9% guaranteed to be in the moment. To be totally present. And it amazed me how this could be accomplished even in a stadium surrounded by 2600 total strangers. There were times when there was total silence. I loved that feeling! Before we started we were told to take pictures now and then put away your cell phones. Shock! What? No photos? Best. Advice. Ever.

  1. What an amazing event! How magical must it have been for there to have been that many people an yet it be so quiet!
    Really cool.
    I haven’t done yoga in a few months but when I do it is always a great workout and I leave clear headed.
    The headstand is one of the only moves that I haven’t tried yet, congrats to you both on making them look easy!

    1. Hi Chris. First, I want to thank you for your comments. They’re always thoughtful and never canned. I appreciate your time and insight.

      Magical is exactly what it was! The handstand is kicking my butt and leaving bruises LOL

      Have a great weekend!

    1. For a while off and on but not until this year did I start practicing on a consistently. Love it almost as much as running 🙂

  2. Wow, great time and wonderful pics. Love that you got to do that with your daughter too!

    1. Hi Nicole. I can’t think of anything that would have made it a better experience 🙂

  3. OMG that is incredible!! I wish I were there. I love anything Lululemon too ha ha! 😉 Your daughter is EXTRAORDINARILY TALL! I couldn’t be more envious, ha ha ha! Never let her be insecure about her height. EVER!

    1. Interesting that you mentioned my daughter’s height. She is on a I don’t want to grow anymore kick right now. We’re working on the insecurity for sure.

      Love all things Lulu 🙂

  4. That is so cool, Jill! Lululemon puts on such great events. They do a free 5K here in St. Louis every year and there is always a great turnout. For me I’m hoping my most memorable event this year will be finishing the Chicago marathon after having that thrown into question due to an injury. We’ll see!

    1. The Chicago Marathon is one of my all time favorite races! I hope you can run it! Fingers crossed for you 🙂

  5. Sounds like you had a great time and such a fun thing to do with your daughter. That’s also great that they told you to put your phones away. Kinda hard to be in the moment when you’re thinking about taking a photo, right? When I did Yoga in Times Square this year, it was also an amazing experience but half the people were focused on taking pics (myself included) which kind of took away from the experience too.

    1. Yes. It really was the best advice ever. Now I need to “no cell phone” more often. Teaching myself to be in the moment and being behind a lens totally takes away from that.

  6. WOW!!! What an incredible experience – love the picture showing all the yoga mats stacked and then laid out!

    1. Hi Brittany. I can’t think of anything that would have made it a better experience 🙂

  7. Yeah I would go ahead and agree that that was pretty epic! I’m so glad you were able to share that with your daughter!!

  8. I love how much you savoured this…together! I also love the no cell phones/photos rule. It makes makes the experience that much more real. and in the moment. You are seeing everything with YOUR very own eyes…and not through a lens if you know what I mean!

    1. So often behind the lens that I miss out. No cell phone. Best. Advice. Ever. Now, I need to do the same without being told to.

    1. Hi Jennifer. I can’t think of anything that would have made it a better experience 🙂

  9. How cute! I think that looks so fun! What a fun experience to share. Yoga is next on my bucket list…who knows maybe next year I’ll be at the Lulu Wanderlust in Breckenridge 🙂
    Thanks

    1. Def try yoga Sami! There’s a good chance you will be hooked after a few sessions. Once you get the hang of it the feeling is addicting 🙂

  10. Wow! That’s awesome! Sounds like an amazing experience!!

    1. Thanks Erik! I can’t think of anything that would have made it a better experience 🙂

  11. How much fun! And I am impressed with those headstands by both of you. We just got a Lulu in town here and they offer so many classes, etc. I need to get in on it.

  12. I love when kids surprise us like that and what an amazing experience to have together! GAB looks as good as ever!! Great pics – especially of the two of you!

    1. Thanks Amy! She def surprised me! Alyssa texted pics of being on the field and her guy friends asked why and how are you on the GAB field. She said yoga and they said no, really. why are you there? LOL

    1. I can’t think of anything that would have made it a better experience 🙂

  13. Oh, wow! How cool. And how great that she went with you.
