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…

Christmas Eve Virtual 10K

Today, I participated in my first virtual race. It was a 10k and it felt good.

I tried to get the BF to go out with me, but he pussed out (it is 34 degrees outside!) and went on the treadmill for a few miles instead. I guess he did almost 4 miles on the treadmill.

I started at exactly 1pm. Not like a regular morning race, but this is the warmest part of the day.


As the map above shows, I started at Julia Davis Park. The river and the ponds were icy. The geese were walking on the ice. 

 My sweat-free face before I started slogging. I did the pics of myself in the warmth of my car.
 I saw some hawk hanging out and didn't really care that I passed under him twice. Thank you Mr. Bird for not pooping on my head.
 I don't know who Cassie is, but her friends provided some motivation at my last mile!


 I was doing great! I am so glad they wrote this down for me :-)
Post slog thumbs up.
At the 3rd mile, I was getting some side stitches. I think it has to do with me being dehydrated. Did I drink water before I slogged? No. I had a turkey dog and a cup and a half of some sludge the BF considered coffee. I walked the last .21 to my car as a cool down. Would I do that in a normal race, no, but I was on my feet moving.

There were a lot of people running on the greenbelt. There was this guy that passed me on my 4th mile. Just like any other race, I got passed. But he was wearing a puffy down jacket. So weird.

Now, on the my xmas eve festivities of making an egg nog cheesecake, and preparing my boeuf bourguignon for a xmas day dinner tomorrow.

Did you know that I think my BF just got me VODKA for an xmas present?!?! I am a little upset about that. Getting alcohol for gifts makes me feel like an alcoholic, no matter how much I drink. He gave me 6 bottles of wine for my birthday this year. I told him not to do that again, but I don't think he listens. Grrr.

Does your significant other give good gifts? I got better gifts years ago from him. Now, it's last minute things without a lot of thought.

What is on your wish list this year? I could use a new purse. My Burberry bag I have been using is starting to show some wear. I have had it for 7 years or so.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
