I thought today I’d write about a common problem for runners, and that is having an IT band that it too tight.

How I Edit My Blog Photos

Recently, I’ve been updating the way I edit the photos for both the blog and social media. Since the beginning of RSG my photos were always edited to be super bright and white, but recently I’ve changed it to be more colorful. Still bright, but more realistic for fitness pictures which are usually outdoors and have a field, track, or whatever in the background. Making it impossible to edit them to fit the usual white theme. Here’s how I edit my blog photos now.

Fat-shaming and Skinny-shaming, Neither is Okay

The other day my mom and I were listening to the radio, and All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor came on. Somehow not even half way through the song my mom and I started talking about body-shaming. However, she was on the defense of what society calls “fat-shaming,” and I was on the defending side of the almost unheard of “skinny-shaming.” Needless to say, she, of course, was confident that thin women were criticized just not as much as women who are – according to society – “plus-sized.” Meanwhile, I was convinced that although women who are considered bigger are criticized more than they should be, women on the opposite side of the spectrum were criticized just as much. By the end of the conversation, we were both a little mad at each other for not seeing the other person’s point of view of the situation, but we both agreed that there is too much criticism of how people’s bodies look.
