Oh my gosh, you guys, it’s been for freaking ever since I’ve done one of these. What’s up with that?!
I realized I had a TON of awesome links saved up, and since it’s Friday, it feels like a great time to share them with you 🙂
Refill your coffee or tea (or wine if you’re reading this in the evening) and enjoy!
(Okay, so these aren’t blog posts, but I love love love listening to podcasts as I walk to and from work)
S-Town <– I need people to listen to this so I discuss it with them.
Science Vs. <– I’m really enjoying the factual, scientific approach to this. The first episode discusses fracking, which is a pretty big issue, and I really appreciated the scientific and non-emotional take on it.
(I’m changing things up by including a quote from the article, hopefully to encourage you to click over and read some more)
Work with brands that can pay you what you want, but don’t shame smaller blogs for writing about a box of snack bars they got in the mail.

In the 2003 Toronto Waterfront Marathon, at the age of seventy-three, Whitlock became the first person over the age of seventy to break three hours in the marathon. A year later, he ran the same race in 2:54:48 (a pace of six minutes and forty seconds per mile), which, adjusting for his age, was one of the best performances in the marathon by anyone, ever.

So while there’s certainly no shame in using running as a tool to reach or maintain a healthy weight, there are many more goals you can set that will bring you long-term satisfaction and real happiness.
It wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized how much of my own issues had been, for lack of a better term, transmitted to me―a deplorable gift of sorts, passed from one generation to the next, rarely with any bad intentions but with an internalized sense of inevitability.
I had everything I needed to be happy. And yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy.
The truth is, those who keep up a regular fitness routine in the long run are motivated by things other than weight loss—and they’re overall healthier as a result.
Happy Friday! Kick back and enjoy with these links from Ange!Click To Tweet
