I forgot I installed an app to track my running/walking mileage on June 1st. It just informed me that I finished my first 'race', having completed 56 miles. That is pretty cool! 56 miles in 3 weeks sounds like so much more than 3 miles a day.

My age was a non-issue then. They're an inclusive organization that has high values for diversity, equity, and inclusion. I'm glad I was still accepted back then. But I worry about my age now and I'm even more self-conscious of this. Ugh.

I'm feeling self-conscious about applying for the outdoor program now. I'm not in their target age range 18-24 and when I posed this questions last time they said it wasn't fine since that's just one of the considerations and not the end all be all. I was still accepted. But now at 5 yrs later, I'm hyper aware of my age. I'm in my mid-30s with a birthday coming up. Sigh. I have mixed feelings now, but don't know if that's just my self-doubt creeping up again, but worry if I can connect with the much younger group if that's the applicants.

Today I saw an ad for a pet training Zoom session. At first totally skeptical and laughed at the idea. But the more I thought about it, it made sense and might work. Wow even our animals are going to be addicted to technology sooner or later.

Today was 0.97 run, 97 JJs, 97 squats, and 97 crunches. I hope I'm sore tomorrow. I didn't set out to run almost a mile since I didn't want to a ton of reps, but it was fun pushing harder. Maybe tomorrow I'll just run 0.25 to balance it. lol

5 years ago, I was accepted to a 3-month outdoor leadership program with the goal of working with underrepresented youth outdoors. I couldn’t start the program due to a family matter, but I think I wasn’t ready to make the time commitment of 1-2 weeknights after work with travel to another city for classes and weekend excursions about 1-2 hrs away. As a POC that didn’t get outdoors (that just wasn’t a thing we did) until my sophomore year in college, nature experience was transformative. Hiking has reignited my passion for the outdoors and I noticed very few POC on the trails. I’m going to re-apply to the program this weekend. Might consider applying for a job opening with our County parks, too.

Taking Zoom Yoga mid-day was amazing. The instructor was really awesome. One of the perks of working from home to be able to take classes with no commute whatsoever.

I'm going to start my period this week. Every month, I get ravenously hungry, tired, and I swear my skin turns almost grey I get so pale. I take an iron supplement for anemia but it can't touch these symptoms. I've thought about doubling my dose during these weeks but I'm not sure it it's safe. The worst part of it is looking like shit. I hate it. I just look washed out, pale, and sick for almost two weeks. Two weeks. There are only four weeks in a month. It sucks. (Just a rant but seriously- if any of you have any ideas to help, I'd love to hear them.)

In response to a confession. I hadn't heard that, and having spent a good part of my childhood in Hawaii, I looked it up. I found two things: 1 - an Urban Dictionary entry for "boogaloo" - Civil war. Does not only pertain to war with the government but also to political sides. and 2 - a very sickening Facebook page. Urg

The only bummer were no cute guys. Side note: I love the new signs for one-way paths for social distancing.
