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…

The Best Part of Going Uphill

Today's slog was 3.47 miles in 41:43. Which included walking during a cell phone call around the 2 mile mark.

my pics always seem unflattering. or maybe cuz i just woke up.

Started at the Firefighters Memorial on the greenbelt. Was going just by feel with a more then 2, less then 5 mile goal. I wore the Newtons and didn't want to hurt myself. I may take them to Seattle to wear. The greenbelt is closed up by Joes Crab Shack and you are detoured behind the old Red Lion Riverside and into ghettoville.

I mean Garden City. I didn't feel too comfortable running on the streets with nothing but trucks and trailer houses, so I headed back. Plus I didn't know how long the detour was and where it went exactly.
ugh. BSU's biggest rival ever is in town.

I made myself go up the railroad bridge by the connector because it is sorta like a hill. Uphill until you hit Orchard. I've always liked this hidden part of the greenbelt. I felt like I did more in elevation then the 57' that Mr. Garmin said I did. Oh well. It was an incline and the decline was the best part. I felt comfortable and my 11min/mi pace felt effortless.

And I burned nearly 500 calories. That means I have pretty much taken care of my pre-slog breakfast and after-slog snack.

I am not a big fan of Nutella but it was there. And I took care of the Apple Pie LaraBar. Yum.

What do you put Nutella on? I think it is weird, like cake frosting and not enough nut flavor. I usually slather a spoon of it on bananas, which I don't like eating all that much either.

Do you incorporate hills into your training?
