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…

Teton Dam Marathon Review

On the 2nd of June, I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive to eastern Idaho for the Teton Dam Marathon. I did the 5K.

Did I mention I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive. Yeah, not the best idea for legs to be in PR shape. My leggies were stiff and at 1100 more feet of elevation then at home, it was a slow trot for sure. No PR attempt this trot, that's for sure.

I woke up at 4am (my normal wake up time is 8am - 10am depending on the day) so that early is  painful. I had everything all packed and ready the evening before- brekky, post-race clothes, snacks, and a full tank of gas for the long drive. All I had to do was make coffee and head out. I didn't even brush my teeth before I left. Coffee first.

The drive was nice and not a lot of traffic for a Saturday morning. I don't know the last time I have been to Rexburg, but it was easy to find the race start. I thought the race started at 8am, but that was the 10K. The 5K started at 8:30am and I got there to get my bib at …

Hiking Lake Creek Road

I have been itching to get up the the Sun Valley area trails with the weather warming and the snow melting off the mountain. I had a few free days away from the other half, who was doing boy projects with his buddies, so perfect timing to get away.

I planned on going earlier in the week, but with it pouring rain all week and a chance of a tornado, I postponed my hike for Friday. The weather was in the 70's and just lovely!

I made sure to hit up some thrift shops for things I could not live without, but found nothing. The other half needed a screwdriver I found for a dollar. That was the only thing that I bought. Well, I bought a Starbucks mocha because I was tired and needed the sugar and caffeine boost. My lovely MIL made sure I was up at 7am being the obnoxious cow that she is. I went to bed at 1am, so I was really tired.

I am kind of a wuss when it comes to traveling to new places by myself. There are so many hidden trails, I just want to make sure I am in the right location, …
