Since I’ve completed my 2nd half marathon, I want to share some thoughts I had…
The gym alway seems like such a horrible place before I get there. I get into a sour mood just thinking about going to the gym. The crazy thing is, I don’t think exercise is all that bad.
Can you believe I completed my first half marathon? It’s okay if you can’t believe. I’m still not sure if I believe it. I mean I would’ve shared my experience much sooner, but I could hardly discuss it while I was recovering. It hurts me to even think about my body paying a fee to travel 13.1 miles at one time. Who ever came up with the concept anyways?!
If an alarm is normalized, is it still alarming? Popular media has had my mind consumed with police brutality. The many, viral recorded interactions have heightened concerns for those at risk. While many of these videos have shown interactions with cars with flashing lights ending with loss of life from a bullet, my mind is consumed with a different kind of alarm during this season.
I have to be honest, Thanksgiving wasn’t everything I hoped for. My mom and I had talked numerous times about how we were going to have healthier food during the holidays, but what does healthy even mean?
