purpurella Ima spy from outer space! Lol ok after running 16 miles yesterday (which I haven't done since 2009), I seriously thought I was insane. I came home and was like, "look it, purpurella, we are NOT running a full marathon!" It really f'kng hurt...mentally more than physically (as weird as that sounds). Those last two miles were excruciating. I woke up today tho and my body and mostly my calf were like "meh, we is a lil sore, pero pero pero we aiiiight!" And I'm like 😶😐😑 and now I think I'm back on board to training for a full 26.2! Coz life is short and running is such a metaphor for life! I'm pretty exhausted to tell you the truth and really need a good night of sleep but I'm mostly really really hungry even tho my pantaloons (yes I said pantaloons) are beginning to sag a lil with all this cot damn running! I'm really hungry right now. And am about to look at pizza hut's strangely weirdly awesome pizza delivery with all kinds of new mixes and spices lol don't judge me and I won't judge you ...ok I'm out I really need to sleep or eat ...one or the other #purpurella #lotusLyfe #iSpy #pyramids #losangeles #dtla #DowntownLA pic taken deep in warehouse district 3d

purpurella That Sun morning you wake up early to hit Stumptown Coffee on Santa Fe/Seventh for the first time & it feels a bit weird down there coz its both rough and upscale at the same time #dtla. Only later do you realize it was a scene straight out of SNL's Kevin Hart 'Gentrification' skit. But I got to flik this so that was great along with the $17 bag of coffee beans I bought #iGentrification #DowntownLA #downtownlosangeles #losangeles #streetart #streetartistry #streetarteverywhere #instagrafite #arteurbano #urbanart #urban #graffiti #graffart #streetphotography 6d

purpurella "I don't favor violence. If we could bring about recognition and respect of our people by peaceful means, well and good. Everybody would like to reach his objectives peacefully. But I'm also a realist. The only people in this country who are asked to be nonviolent are black people." Malcolm X [spent the afternoon with my favorite social justice organization in the heart of #skidrow #skidrowmurals and truly love this piece by @scbrownbear this community has so much heart] #Crushow #downtownlosangeles #dtla #DowntownLA #streetart #streetartistry #streetarteverywhere #arteurbano #urbanart #urban #streetphotography #instagrafite #malcolmx #malcolm #x 2w

Perpetua purpurella
purpurella Runners tools I've been dealing with an overused re-occurring calf injury after running one too many hills at a fast pace. My running since last Nov has been a mixture of rest periods as needed and homeopathic treatments (icing, heating, Bromelain - pineapple extract for inflammation, Arnicare gel for swelling, compression sleeve & massage) and somehow someway it's held up. After this last half marathon, my calf did give me the side eye so I rested many days and today is my first day back. Let's see how it goes. Easy 4 mile run this evening and no I'm not giving up on long distance running. I'm slow now and although it's frustrating for me I'm going to continue & either I can or can't #justdoit #run #runner 3w
