Now Trending – Best Links Week of 11.09
Happy Fri-yay, ya’ll. I used to wonder what it would be like to have a Saturday that didn’t involve having a long run and now I unfortunately have a Saturday that doesn’t involve a long run and I’m not into it. Long story short, I decided to try and run 12 miles on my Achilles last week, overcompensated on my quad, strained that and now I’m out for the count. I’m 12 weeks out from the LA Marathon so I called the physical therapist in tears on Tuesday and now I’m in a relationship with ice packs and my foam roller. COOL. If anyone asks, we didn’t meet on Tinder and instead met at a running group. Aren’t. I. Hilarious? My body is basically falling apart and I’m 26.
I’m headed out to SoulCycle since it’s the only form of exercise I like that doesn’t currently kill my quad/Achilles so enjoy the best links I found this week.
24 Hours in Seattle, Washington. I’m having such issues committing to things, even weekend trips. I need to book a flight to Seattle and just do it.

This post by Aziz Ansari on parents went pretty viral this week. Your parents were people just like us at one time, they’re just doing the best they can. They just want to spend time with us. And if I ever had someone who was 1/2 me, I’d probably want to hang out with them too.
What do your exes say about you? (Really though, what do I say about my exes?) Notice how I said exes. Such a reformed serial dater over here.

What you should know about going gluten-free. Fun fact – most gluten-free foods are packed with preservatives. Just stick to real, whole foods. If you think that gluten-free bagel is any healthier you’re wrong.
