Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel. - Natalie Dormer
10 miles this morning. The first part of it was rough and humid. The sun started beating down and I had to walk. Around mile 7 or so, I had a choice between cutting my run short or going the tough route up Laurel Hill. I decided I’d shoot for the tough one and if I had to, I’d just walk if it got too hot. The sky got really dark and it started pouring at mile 9.5. Thunder and lightning and just buckets of water falling from the sky. And I was smiling so hard. Logan picked up a very happy and cooled down me at mile 10. Thankful today for outdoor showers and boyfriends who have enough sense and heart to pick me up when it thunderstorms.
