The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.


About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

New Milestone

Thursdays tempo run was 5miles. Saturdays long run was 10 miles. I just hit a new milestone. Double digits! I am pretty proud of myself.

It really seems like the beginning of this year, I could barely jog a ONE MILE and now here I am on the treadmill for 10. I am proud of myself.

I am looking forward to this half marathon deal - in just 19 more days! If my 13 miles goes like my 10 miles, then I am going to have to walk a little more then expected. I was feeling good and comfortable until about mile 6 and then I started to lose a little bit of steam. I did push through the burning legs but halfway through mile 9, my gut said cool it down a bit. So I walked.

I wore compression socks during my slog on the dreadmill that I bought about a month ago. They did keep my calves happy, but I feel like I need something now for the knee up. My left knee feels a little swollen. I iced it yesterday and was planning a bike ride today, but I think I will wait a day. I am afraid of being unrunable (I guess that is not a word but oh well) and not being able to do what I have planned to do for the rest of the year.

Now, time for a new milestone. :-)
