W5D1 done!! Got up early to run with my girlfriend, who is what I call and "actual" runner.... and I finished almost as strong as she did. I'm planning to do my run Thursday in the evening, which is something I haven't really done. All my runs have been in the morning, mostly to avoid the humidity that comes midday around here. But it was cool and overcast this morning, mabe Thursday won't be so bad.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
