Golfing- My fifth Week Challenge

Image

Sorry about the lack of posts, I have been dealing with some personal issues and I am finally catching up on some posts! 

Activity Description: 

Golf: This is a precision sport where you hit a small ball into a small hole a long ways away!  You use drivers, clubs and putters to accomplish this task. 

What I did:  I played 18 holes to raise money for the Abbotsford Food Bank

What you need: A good pair of shades, clubs (you can often rent a few) and a lot of golf balls, if you are anything like me (A lot of balls went into the bush and water.)   

Difficulty: Golf is a great activity for those who are just starting to thinking of fitness, as it does not require a lot of exertion.  Physically and mentally it can be difficult because you have to hit balls precisely and focus on the task at hand.  I would give it a difficulty of 10 out of 10, not for the workout but for how fricken hard the game of golf is!  

What I liked/disliked: I liked the first nine holes of golf, but after that I found it to be mentally exhausting. Koodos to all of the people who do well at this sport because IT IS HARD! I don’t think I will be playing golf for a while: I like fast paced activities so I found myself to be a little frustrated and bored.

About kristineewald

Hello! My name is Kristine Ewald and I am incredibly excited and honored to be one of the first Canadian women selected as an Oakley Ambassador! My Challenge for this year is to try a different excerise/activity once a week and write about my experiences! I also want to carry on with my regular sports that I love! A little bit about me : I have had an amazing life so far! I have wonderful family and friends who have supported my many journeys. I absolutely love sports, hiking, volleyball (indoor and beach), and swimming, among many other activities. I also played middle for the UFV Cascades volleyball team and was chosen as a league all-star. Not only do I LOVE sports, but I have a passion for adventure and I love helping others. I traveled to Costa Rica to play volleyball and work in orphanages, and also to Thailand with my husband to hike, do yoga, ride elephants and, most importantly, help at an AIDS Orphanage. My biggest, hardest and proudest accomplishment yet was having my daughter Leighton! I currently work for my local Food Bank, but my ultimate goal is to encourage people with special needs to get active, especially within the school districts! I have been told that I am stubborn, adventurous, hard working, fun, sensitive and maybe a bit crazy. I love Oakley because they are passionate about encouraging and supporting women to perform beautifully and to live a healthy and active lifestyle. They also make amazing products that encourage this healthy lifestyle through amazing performance while still looking absolutely beautiful! I hope to do the same by challenging myself and other women to perform beautifully by pushing themselves, to live a healthy and active lifestyle and step out of their comfort zones!
