purpurella Thass me on far right this week was one of those work weeks where I dreamt about work every nite. So I hope u can understand why it's so funny to me to stand in front of this "house of mirror" after imbibing in happy hour with my social justice fellow comrades/chicas!! Coz I really needed to laugh (my work life is too intense mayne) I mean look at my arm 🏽 lol I'm home and yes I'm crawling into bed now. So exhausted. You just don't know ! #iGeek #iNerd #uPlayiSleep #nerdsSleeponfridayNites lol happy Friday y'all! #dtla #lotusLyfe #blackbrownunity 🏾🏽🏽 lol 1w

purpurella This song slowly won me over and it now haunts me. Love the melancholy trumpet in it #TPAB #kendricklamar whenever I listen to this album I always do so with understanding that kdot made this for the Black community and black men, black homies in jail. Yet still i benefit do much from the music ...so much inspiration 2w

purpurella #tb to that time I played beer pong for the 1st time in my life lol [i was also a reverse Oreo cookie with the dopest girls from Norway ] this pic cracks me up cos I think we either strategizing for next game or debriefing from last game. I don't even drink beer so they filled half the cups with wine and doing shots of wine is disgusting! Lol so I quite often spit the wine out or threw it over my shoulder. It actually got to a point when I started downing beer shots and it wasn't that bad lol about a week later I had a delayed reaction & realized how unhygienic beer pong actually is!!!! Lol #beerpong #redcups #cups #snow #tbt postscript: I always had my head in a book in college ok?!?! Lol I really need to take my IG posts more seriously tee hee 3w

purpurella Post marathon fatigue. That's where I'm at. Was sore for about 3 days but energy continues to be low. I literally come home from work, I eat dinner, & then promptly crash 😴 like I'm already sleepy (it's only 7:52pm) and ima prolly crash in next hour ! I know, I know, I need rest. Lol looks like I'll be back to my normal self in another week or two! Anyways here she is ...that city of angels #dtla #downtownla from one of my favorite viewing spots! #skyscraper #purple 4w

purpurella "DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK" lol yassssssss! I want to give a giant THANK U from the bottom of my heart to all who cheered me on & gave endless encouragement during my training & race! Words can't express how grateful i am for all the love showered my way. ️ here's a race recap for those who are interested. My potassium levels were on fleek! My electrolytes were turnt up! Lol I did not hit The Wall (unlike in 2008 when I hit it pretty bad at mile 20)! Proper nutrition prior to race day made all the difference including proper hydration. A big shout out to bananas! I ran it in 5:20 which is pretty awesome as I ran with an injured calf & less training as a result. I believe i woulda come in under 5 hrs if it hadn't been for the need to hydrate & stop at the water tables every mile. As a result I had to use the port-a-potty 2 times with long lines. I also took time to stretch my calf twice when it began to tighten up. Another time i just chilled under the 405 freeway to escape the heat for a bit. The heat was awful. Oppressive lol. I ran thru so many hoses & hydrants and stuffed ice down my shirt only to dry up and get hot again within minutes. Miles 1-11 went real quick. Miles 12-20 fkn hurt. They were a struggle. Sigh. I never felt like quitting but I was fkn miserable! Shout out to DMX for getting me thru! Lol Miles 21-26 were easier for some odd reason and I powered thru to the finish. When I crossed the finish line I felt so weird. Like really weird. (I'm positive I looked like crap the entire run ). I could barely walk & I just wanted my mom. Lol they shoved a hard as a rock bagel in my hands & I shuffled my way to the exit. I hurt ...my thighs, my feet, my calf !! Oh lawd it was awful. Lol but not as bad as yesterday. Yesterday was worse! Depleted. No reserves. Sore. I started crying yesterday after it hit me what I accomplished. Lol like that. Two LA Marathons is pretty koo! Lol Running this course was actually very fun!! In spite of it all I'm glad I did it. I can really let my calf rest and heal properly now that I got that out my system! #lamarathon #potassiumonfleek 1mon

purpurella I should be posting my #lamarathon race outfit but instead ...ta-da!!!! Here are my new #adidas #superstar kicks! They are lotus Adi kicks!! I know!!! How u think I feel?! So much more awesomery than my outfit to run in 91 degrees "unsafe" running conditions tomorrow. Lol I plan on leisurely jogging thru miles 1-19 and doing the zombie shuffle from mile 20-26.2! Phuck pace! Phuck PR! Phuck all the training! Bring on the misters, ice, fire hoses, water hoses, water guns, water, water, Gatorade, and water! Lol omg tomorrow is going to be fun but a cot damn mess! *shakes fist at the illuminati for bring on climate change* lol I gotta laugh or otherwise just start crying tee hee #chickswithkicks #lotus #lotuslyfe 1mon
