Swings Tampa Bay is a spontaneous community building organization that hangs hand-painted swings all over Tampa Bay in the middle of the night
This is NOT what democracy looks like. "The State of Alabama continues to deny the right to vote to citizens who have served and completed sentences for felony convictions. Alabama's disenfranchisement rate of one in 14 residents is triple the national average. Mass incarceration has a disproportionate effect on the voting power of poor and minority communities." source: Equal Justice Initiative
I loved book one of the Hunger Games trilogy, but will admit that I didn't finish the whole series. I'm still excited about this trailer though!
This weekend I ran a local 9 mile race, the Pioneer Road Run. Nine miles?, I should be absolutely pysched - I haven't been running much at all, and I certainly haven't run that far in months. And, yet, instead of being proud of myself for finishing (and for not walking once!) I was totally embaressed to come in third to last (the organizers even asked me "So, is anyone else still out there?"). So silly. My back is hurting (my reoccurring middle-back spot of pain), so I took Sunday off from excercizing. I woke up in a lot of pain this morning, but going to pilates and streching it out helped. Still deciding about whether to go to CrossFit tonight. It's been a few days since I went and I really miss it, but also I don't want my back to get worse....
