I've been reflecting on self definition of beauty lately, and came across a piece I wrote a long time ago. I wanted to share this piece from the archives because the conversation of what it means to be beautiful has been increasingly relevant these days.
Over the weekend I was able to squeeze in competing at Crazy Monkey USA’s Kettlebell Championship. With all the traveling we’ve had so far this summer, I haven’t been able to stick to a consistent training schedule enough to be ready for a 10 minute set. So, for fun, I decided to sign up for the 5 minute biathlon instead.
Well, that was a hell of a trip. It was so damn beautiful. It was physically and mentally crushing, yet soul replenishing at the same time. But with all the planning one can do—when it comes down to it—plans never really go the way one thinks.
Oh summer. You fly by too fast. Although here in Seattle it doesn't really start until after July 5th, so maybe we're just getting started.
For your listening pleasure, here are not one, but TWO summer playlists. One for your get-up-and-go-outside days and driving-with-the-windows-down-after-sunset-while-eating-molly-moons nights. Enjoy.
