A new opinion piece from the always awesome Mark Bittman (did you know he's also a runner?): Sustainable Farming Can Feed the World?

Awesome portraits of Olympic athletes. Inspiring variety and dedication.

Last night at the gym I did another mini triathlon (30 min sprint intervals, 20 min biking, 15 min swim). I know it's probably not the workout I should be doing but I get bored so easily. Ugh. Trying to stay dedicated and adhere to my training plan but it's not always easy. I have mad respect for anyone who does this with a partner or kids or other challenges - I'm single and child-free and still find it hard to fit in all the meal planning and workouts etc. Anyways, this morning I went to bootcamp, which was hard having just been in the gym 10 hours earlier. But I wanted to get another workout in before I get in the car and drive to Portland this afternoon. I always get a little nervous about keeping up my workouts when I'm out of my routine but hopefully I'll get some good runs in while I'm in Portland.

I'm new to Guernica, but they've quickly become a favorite for their great interviews and articles, including this one: A Carefully Crafted F**k You (Nathan Schneider interviews Judith Butler): "The gender-theorist-turned-philosopher-of-nonviolence discusses the choices that make people expendable, the violent foundation of nonviolent activism, and the role grief can play in setting a new course."
