What I’m Reading
Greatist’s essay on how to keep going as a woman runner even though it’s scary. So many good tips and ways to feel less scared, but I thought this line was the most important: “In order for women runners to be really free, our culture first needs to reconcile with its pervasive misogyny, and men as a collective group need to stop harassing and assaulting women.”
You Are What You Eat: Religious aspects of the health food movement. This article is from 1981 and I was introduced to it this week by a colleague. “Followers of the [health food] movement are also promised “salvation,” not in the form of afterlife, but in terms of enhanced physical well being, greater energy, longer life-span, freedom from illness, and increased peace of mind.” Lots to ponder here

What I’m Buying
Secret Santa and white elephant gifts ideas are always tricky. This year I’m giving a 365-day Bob Ross calendar*. It’s fun but still practical. And who doesn’t love Bob Ross?
