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…

I Did A Hard Guy. Again.

Yep. I did my Hard Guy trail again. And I did it alone. It was hard and dirty. (TWSS) And there were a few miles where I was alone. No bikers or other trail users. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be-being alone on the trail. It was really nice.

 The only way I can negative split, ever, is by having the first half uphill and last half downhill. lol

Funny, but I know I can't be the only female trail user that goes and completes miles alone, but wow. I got "Hi" from everyone I passed -mostly men mountain bikers.  There tone was either flirty, surprised, protective, but all friendly.

I took 3 Hammer gels (raspberry & orange at miles 3, 6, & 9) and my Camelbak lasted me the whole time. I did feel a little sloshy in the gut, but I had plenty of water.

And the whole peeing in the wilderness thing? Yeah, I prefer the potty in my house but had to brave a side of the trail pee. And I need to work on my aim. Thank goodness I brought 2 wetwipes with me.

Here are a bunch of pics.

Basically mile 1

Super steep section where most bikers have to walk up.

Mile 6.something. End of Hard Guy & ready to do him again dowhill.

Super smoky out today.

Dirty feeties. Maybe a few irritated spots from the grit, too. There was a used condom to the upper left that I shoulda taken a pic of.
Chocolate Endurox R4 better then chocolate milk. Serious. 

 What was your workout this weekend? Do you feel safe doing trails alone?
