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…

My Brain Said Yes...

My body said no. I really wanted to put in over 20 miles before it got dark Saturday.

Didn't happen. I am disappointed that no matter how much my brain said "slog faster", "get the garmin to a 14:XX pace!" Didn't work. My legs just didn't want to work.

I started out good. at a 13 minute mile pace that I wanted. I had a updated fueling plan in place that I was giving a try.

My legs had other ideas. I slogged about 10 miles at a 13-14min pace. The wind was at my back pushing me along.
 Made it to Lucky Peak area. Got to crunch leaves as much as I wanted. Love hearing fall leaves go crunch!
This is where it was starting to go bad.  I had to slog into the wind on the trip back. I hate this when I ride my bike here but running is worse. My legs hurt. Both balls of my feet. My right knee, my right hip, my quads. Everything hurt. I have myself to blame - I'll put details of that in my next post. I had to walk the last 10 miles. There was no way my legs would move. The last mile sucked as I got to my car. My feet hurt worse then what they normally do in my shoes.

I did see this and tried my best to get a little perky step going with nearly 6 miles left to get to my car.

My cell didn't catch it the best. There were 20 whitetail deer. The most I have seen. Usually no more then 10. Mostly around 5 when I see them on the greenbelt and around BSU. They all focused on me when I was watching them. Between Barber Park and Lucky 13 pizza.

Yeah, It got cold and dark and I hurt all over before I finished. I made it 19 miles. But I walked half. Failing on my desire for over 20. I know why I failed and I will post later on that.
