How to Wash Your Running Shoes

Yes, you can wash your running shoes in the washing machine! For a brief demonstration of how to do so, watch the video below.

First, remove any loose dirt with an old toothbrush. Then remove the shoes laces, and put the whole works into a pillow case or washable laundry bag. Next, put the bag into the washing machine and set it to a low cycle (or, if you have a newer machine that measures the weight of the load, just let it do its thing).

After the wash has run its course, remove the bag and contents and either leave the shoes to air dry on a rack, or place them in the dryer on a dry rack (if your machine has this capability). Be sure to follow the machine’s instructions regarding shoe drying.

And finally, remove your newly laundered shoes!

NB. The cleanliness may not last long, particularly if you like the trails as much as I do! ;)

Reflections

(Reflections. Thoughts. Actions. Change.)

If you could do anything with this life, what would you do?

If how you see and perceive the world is a reflection of you, how do you feel about your current view of the world? Do you see hopelessness and despair? Or do you see hope, potential? Do you see a world in need of repair, a world in need of change? Change that you could help to bring about?

If your thoughts are a reflection of you, what do you want your thoughts to be? If your thoughts bring about and impact your actions, what do you want your thoughts to be? If your actions are a reflection of you, what do you want your actions to be? What impact do you want them to have on this world? What imprint do you want them to leave behind? If your thoughts are a reflection of you, what do you want your thoughts to be?

Thoughts are malleable. Thoughts can change. They can evolve. New thought patterns can be formed. And this is all within your control. You are the keeper, the initiator of, and the participant in your thoughts. You, and only you, directly impact what you think. Only you can actualise your thoughts and turn them into actions. And if they reflect your impact on the world, your contribution, what do you want them to say? What affect do you want them to have? If you could change anything about this world, what would it be? What do you want the world of tomorrow to look like? What change would you want to contribute to bringing about?

When you look around at the world, what do you see reflected back? What would you like to see reflected back? How would you like people to behave? You can make that world a reality. Be that reflection. Be that change. Think it. Act it. Live it.

If you could do anything with this life, what would it be?
