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 Running Halloween Costume

I have a Halloween run planned. And I noticed that Idaho Running Company in Boise was having a Halloween themed fun run on last Thursday. I had to join in on that.

I guess I better have made a costume, huh!

I spend pretty much a whole day searching the interwebs for a fun, running, costume. Halloween, I need to rock my Team Beef shirt, so I needed a costume where that could be shown.

Searching, and searching and searching.

Ah ha! I found the perfect costume. All I needed was a huge chunk of cardboard and some paint.


It took about 2 days to make just because of all the coats of paint we put on my costume. I really wanted to win the Idaho Running Company costume contest!

I sent a few pics to my friends and they all loved my costume after it was done. I felt like it was fun, and unique.

When I showed up to Shu's on Thursday evening, I felt that I had a good chance of winning! I'm seriously really shy, so I was a little nervous to put it on and parade around the store. Plus it was kinda big. But after I signed in and got ready to start the fun run, I had some really good reactions to my costume.


I basically carried this piece of cardboard for the 2 mile run. It really started getting awkward near the end. Plus I stepped into a pothole covered with leaves in the last half and tweaked my ankle a bit, so I really wasn't on my A-Game.


The sign costume wouldn't fit in my backseat flat, so we bent it in half. When the breeze came up, it was really awkward to carry.


I was unsure if I should paint the back to match the front, or just paint it all black. I decided to just go with plain.

Once back into the store, we got some swag thrown at us - new socks, Clif Bars and stuff. Yay! We then voted for best costume.

I was one of 3 that won goodie bags for best costume.


I got some cool Shu's runner dude logo'ed swag. New socks are always welcomed. (If you need the free shipping coupon for RoadID, lemme know & I'll send it your way)


I'll be doing a blog post on the FITS Runner Lite socks in the next couple of weeks.


I got a Camelbak Podium Chill bottle, some logo stickers and tattoos, a pewter bracelet and necklace - made by Treasure Cast in Boise.

And I got a $15 gift card. Totally worth it just for that. Yay! I think I am ready for another pair of shoes from Shu's.

Are you running a Halloween race and what is your costume?
