The oldest person alive was born on April 19, 1897, meaning that April 18th, 1897 was approximately the last time the Earth was inhabited by an entirely different set of people and if you don’t think that’s the realist shit ever then you can get right on outta town.
Tomorrow I’m going to run my first 10k!
That’s 6.2 miles, with my sister by my side, only a year after I shattered what is arguably one of the most pivotal bones in the foot, resulting in surgery and 6 months of physical therapy.
While I didn’t overcome cancer, a car accident, or any other equally catastrophic event, I am very proud of where I am now- last year at this time, I’m not so sure I would have been motivated to run this race tomorrow. For me, losing my ability to walk without some sort of support or assistance for 4 months meant that my previous lifestyle of soccer, running, climbing, hiking, and wearing kick-ass high heels was in danger. I’ve fought to make sure that my newly acquired arthritis (at the ripe young age of 20, mind you) isn’t going to get in my way of being a powerful and productive 20-something-year-old young adult. And tomorrow, I’m proving to myself that this is true. I’m proud and I don’t mind if it comes off as overly puffed up or self-gratifying, because I’m allowed to be excited about this. (I just hope that the people who know me can be proud of me too).
Oh, and those bad boys in the pink and grey are carrying me the whole way.
3 miles today!
i think instead of the woman taking her husband’s name when they get married or doing the hyphenated thing
couples should just smash their last names together
so like if a Smith married a Grabowski you could be Smabowski or Grabith or Grasmithski
and then as the generations go on the names just get more and more ridiculous
why aren’t we doing this
My family is watching really creepy tv shows and normally, this is right up my alley, but tonight… not so much.
