This is freaking hilarious. As in I have now read it 4 times, and it still makes me laugh out loud.
Have you read this?? OMG. You must.
Some of my favorites:
“DO over-accessorize. Because you’re totally gonna need all that shit.”
“Marathon: (noun) A popular form of overpriced torture wherein participants wake up at ass-o-clock in the morning and stand in the freezing cold until it’s time to run, at which point they miserably trot for a god-awful interval of time that could be better spent sleeping in and/or consuming large quantities of beer and cupcakes.”
“DO NOT despair when thinking about how much farther you have to go. Instead, console yourself by inventing bizarre ways of measuring distances.”
I hope it makes you laugh, too.
6 miles done today! That’s my farthest run since San Diego! I have 8 on the docket for my long run this weekend when I’m in Wisconsin!
Running Tip: Feeling a bit blah about running today? Take a second to try this: Call up a positive running memory–experiencing a runner’s high, nabbing a PR, or enjoying a buddy’s company. A new study says that recalling a good running-related experience can boost your motivation to get moving.
Food for Thought: Grapes. Whether green, red or black, grapes are a rich source of antioxidants. All grapes contain resveratrol, but it’s more concentrated in red and black grapes. This antioxidant may protect cells from aging and act as an anti-inflammatory.
