The WODs for the MCSA Monster Mash Fundraising Event have been posted!

I found this interview with writer, actor, director Lena Duhnam, and I have to say, I love pretty much everything she has to say about exercise and body image. A few quotes, just in case you don't have time to read the whole thing:
  • "I had to learn, as you age, you have to move. You have to move so you don't die. You have to move so your brain doesn't atrophy. You have to move so that you look a little bit like a person that you might want to be. There are a thousand reasons why exercise is important, and I've had to find ways to make it sexy for myself."
  • "I also think when we do exercise, when we really own and understand our bodies and claim our physicality, our superficial quibbles with our bodies lessen because we realize what our bodies can do for us. My relationship to eating, my relationship to critiquing my own shape, all of that has changed since I've started viewing my body much more as a tool to do my work. "
  • "I would say two things. One is that I have been 30 pounds heavier and I've been 30 pounds lighter, and it has never had an effect on my ability to find love or connect with people. What had an effect on my ability to find love or connect with people was never my thighs, it was how I felt about myself and the love that I was giving to myself."
