Today was long run day. Things went fine for the first couple of miles, then I started to get a blister which is super weird because it usually takes way more miles to get into blister territory. Then I started to get a friction burn under my sports bra, the same exact sports bra I wear for every long run which never chafes at all, which is why I freaking wear it for the long runs. WTF? It made the run interminable. It also reminded me that I never shared the pictures from blisterpocalypse 2016.and I really want to document it for posterity. Warning, gross feet pictures ahead:
THE FAT ACTIVISM CONFERENCE:
TOOLS FOR THE REVOLUTION!
This year we have a kick ass line up of speakers including some super cool fathletes and other speakers talking about everything from “Re-Imagining Fashion from an Inclusive Framework” to “Activism for the Introverted and Anxious” to “Building Fat Patient Power While Accessing Healthcare” and more. This is a virtual conference so you can listen by phone or computer wherever you are, and you’ll receive recordings and transcripts of each talk so that you can listen/read on your own schedule. We also offer a pay what you can afford option to make the conference accessible to everyone. The Conference will be held September 23-25, 2016
