Hey there! All day yesterday I thought it was Thursday so I’m a little bummed today isn’t Friday. Isn’t it the worst when that happens? Ugh!
I vlogged yesterday – it’s just another day in the life video. I get a little dramatic at the end of the vlog, egged on by a post that Megan wrote earlier this week about trail running and the scary possibilities that runners have to think about:
I didn’t vlog after I got done with my run, but I ended up doing two easy miles. Have you guys downloaded the Garmin app update? The new design is flawless! I love it!
Mile 1: 14:01 (run/walk)
Mile 2: 13:18 (run/walk)
2 miles / 13:39 pace / 81*F with 70% humidity
The wind last night was absolutely crazy once again. Several times during the first mile I felt like I was getting pushed backwards, but during the second mile the wind was behind me and I felt like I was soaring back to my car. Several times I forced myself to slow down because I didn’t want to end a great run with any negative side effects.
When I finally got home this book was waiting for me in the mail:
I’m really into buying physical copies of books right now. For the last few years I purchased eBooks exclusively, but I guess I’m feeling nostalgic for the good ol days right now!
For those of you who don’t know, Tyler is a popular YouTuber and his book is a collection of short stories that he’s never told in any of his videos. If you’re not a Tyler fan the book probably won’t interest you since it’s a collection of stories about things he’s experienced, but if you do like him it should be a good read.
From what I understand Tyler touches on what it was like to come out, his battle with an eating disorder, what it was like to be in an abusive relationship and of course what it was like to become Internet famous.
Speaking of eating disorders, I’m going back to see a doctor about mine. I’m not quite ready to blog about it yet. I will soon though because I think it’s important to talk openly about mental disorders so that A.) people take them seriously, B.) we remove the stigma that you have to be “crazy” to have one and C.) so that people suffering know it’s okay to ask for help.
Don’t worry, I am not doing anything to harm myself and I am generally really happy. I am definitely not binging/purging. I’ll try and write an update about all of this next week for those that are interested.
(Yes, it has dawned on me that I’m now in physical therapy and mental therapy. Story of my life!! I think this means soon I’m going to feel refreshed and renewed all around!)
And now I am trying to think of something funny to say because I don’t want to sign off on such a serious note…
Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂
What was the last book you read?
Do you listen to audio books when you run?
