+so all of the thoughts I thought I might tell her turned into songs that until now she’s never heard of

This is my leg and my foot on the pavement in St. Paul, MN. I would love to say that I'm a confident woman who has outgrown the self-conscious days of being a teen and a 20-something, but alas I have not. I look at that knee and am disgusted. It looks dough-y and unathletic. I beat myself up so much about the way that my body has formed. Yet those shoes? Those shoes make me smile. This is the pair that won 3rd place in a local 5K last September. The same pair that carried me through 26.2 miles in November on that blustery morning, and the ones that still carry me on many a good run and look cute doing it. Despite where I am on my scale of body-image-confidence, these shoes will make me crack a smile daily.

About Me

My photo
I am a recent grad-school grad, who enjoys spending my time learning to make the perfect cup of coffee, running as many miles as my legs will carry me on, learning music that I'm skeptical about but that Devon says I'll love, and loving on my sweet friends - near and afar.
