Selfie Sunday – International Edition

It seems I’m a day behind on my posts this week, but Selfie Monday just doesn’t have the same ring to it! Below are the Selfies from my trip to Iceland and Ireland as well as from the last week.  Unfortunately I was clearing space on my phone and deleted several of them that I thought I had transferred but had not, so there are two bikes, two runs, an open water swim, and a swim at a seriously small hotel pool (turn every four strokes? You betcha! This looked bigger on the website…) that will forever go undocumented. Here’s what I’ve got, enjoy!

The Fat Activism Conference Is Back!  

This is a virtual conference so you can listen to the talks by phone and/or computer wherever you are. Whether you are looking for support in your personal life with family, friends, healthcare providers etc. or you’re interested in being more public with your activism with blogging, petitions, protest, projects, online activism, or something else, this conference will give you tools and perspectives to support you  and your work, and to help you make that work intentionally intersectional and inclusive, so that nobody gets left behind.

    So jealous! Wish I could visit Ireland. One day, hopefully 🙂

    I love your blog & read it religiously. I am hoping to have the opportunity to cheer you on in person for your IRONMAN. As of right now I don’t have to work the day of it, so hopefully my boss keeps it that way.

    I told some of my friends about how you are kicking butt at sending such an important message and many of them are seriously interested in accompanying me to root for you at the IM.

    Please keep posting content and blogs, I find you are a breath of fresh air in a world deprived of oxygen.
