Run mummy run!

My thoughts on running and marathon training


going to college is great

getting married is great

having children is great

but implying that there’s something wrong with people who don’t want to do those things and that they’ll never feel fulfilled in life if they never do those things is not great

All three things are not only great. All 3 are fucking hard, and at times you’ll want to quit.

I was angry, so I went for a run. And things got better.

I was confused, so I went for a run. And things got better.

I was exhausted, so I went for a run. And things got better.

I was lost, unsure, empty, afraid. Certain that whatever was left of my sanity had snapped, had come untethered and floated away, to a place so high and remote that I would never see it again, and that even if I did, I wouldn’t recognize it.

So I went for a run. And things got better.

I felt like things could not possibly get worse, so I went for a run. And things got better.

(Another time, I felt like things could not get much better. I went for a run. Things got much better.)

After enough miles, over enough runs and enough years, I realized: No matter what, no matter when, or where, or why, I can find my shoes and go for a run and things will get better.

And that realization? Just knowing that?

It made things better.

I had a tight ITB, it got worse.

I was overstrained, I got worse.

I had injured glutes. They got worse.

Rest, sometimes, people.

I’ll tell you what I’m tired of hearing? That somehow or other we’re too emotional when we talk. You know, when we raise an issue, we’re too emotional. Well, I am emotional… It brings tears to my eyes to know how women every, single day are working so hard and are getting paid less. It makes me emotional to hear that. Then, when I hear all of these phony reasons — some are mean and some are meaningless — I do get emotional. I get angry, I get outraged, I get volcanic.

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.

boys have to deal with girls on their periods

Faith in humanity restored! Never judge a book by its cover! 

fuck yeah

These guys are some of the most amazing people.

I will always Reblog this

I met a couple of these guys from the Texas chapter at a bike rally down in Keyma, and they are so big hearted dudes.

omfg so many tears!!!!! these are some amazing people and i can’t thank them enough for helping these children.

Coming from a family that all ride and knowing the looks we got when I was younger and would go with my parents, I still say bikers are some of the nicest and most comedial people I’ve ever met, but these guys and gals raised my respect for them even more.
