I missed a ‘Black Friday Post’ - but here you go (a little late to the party, but just in time for Cyber Monday)
Worn Wear: a Film About the Stories We Wear
Presented by Patagonia
Directed by Keith, Lauren, Chris, and Dan Malloy
Closed-captioned in English, Spanish and Korean
Worn Wear is an exploration of quality — in the things we own and the lives we live. This short film takes you to an off-the-grid surf camp in Baja, Mexico; a family’s maple syrup harvest in Contoocook, New Hampshire; an organic farm in Ojai, California; and into the lives of a champion skier, a National Geographic photographer, and a legendary alpinist. It also features exclusive interviews with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard. Released as an antidote to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping frenzy, Worn Wear is an invitation to celebrate the stuff you already own.

Is there anything Emelie Forsberg can’t do? Nope.
I am training for a half-marathon right now, coach-less-ly. Which is a choice I made for myself, as I do have a coach and a running team. I just chose to abandon them temporarily because it’s “winter” and “cold” and “I work late.”
Which is stupid. (Moreso, because I live in Florida, so I’m not really fooling anyone with my cold complaints).
So now I’ve routinized myself to the gym, treadmill-bound. Putting in miles to the tune of Alex Trebek.
My goal is 1:35:00. And the race is on Thanksgiving. So we’ll see just how much this fake terrain treadmill stuff pays off.
One of my absolute favorite companies for American made, travel friendly, basic pieces.
