On My Radar

This past week I’ve been contemplating on whether I should add my race results to my race page. I’ve gone back in forth with this idea because I’ve never really felt comfortable sharing my times, but if you’ve checked the page you’ll notice that I decided to add them and I think I’ve made the right decision.

When it comes to running I’ve been doing it for a long time, but it’s been an on and off activity.  It’s always been something fun to do on my own. In the end I decided to share my time because it’s a chance for me to share my running journey and to show others that progress takes time. I’ve already made some progress this year with two races under my belt and I hope to continue as I prepare for my first marathon.

With all that said, here are some here’s what’s been on my radar this week:

ONE \\ Simone Biles Dances to “How Far I’ll Go”

For Dancing with the Stars Disney night, Simone Biles (love her!) danced to “How Far I’ll Go.” But Auli’i Cravalho (love her too!) sang it live so it’s 10x better than you can even imagine.

TWO \\ S-Town Podcast

I’ve just binged on all of the episodes of S-Town. It’s a new podcast by the same people who did Serial. They released all seven episodes at once, and it made it so easy to get through it… not to mention the fact that it’s incredibly well done. It blew Serial out of the water. I’m hoping more podcasts go this storytelling route.

THREE \\ Cardboard Cutout

Cardboard cutouts of people (and pets) never fail to make me laugh. Well, this mom got the last laugh when her son gave her a cutout of himself before he went off to college. She’s been taking hilarious photos of the cutout all over town doing the funniest things. 

FOUR \\ Michelle Phan, Why I Had To Leave Everything & Start Over

Feeling frustrated at the end of the week? I thought this was a great and inspiring read about Michelle Phan. I’ve always found Michelle Phan to be a hardworking businesswoman, and her perspective on success and failure was eye-opening. 

FIVE \\ Casting JonBenet

If you’ve read my previous posts you’ll know how much I love crime podcasts and documentaries. Well Netflix has done it again, this time they’re focusing on the case of JonBenet Ramsey asking local actors to unpacking how each remembers and relates to the ill-fated Ramsey family.
