I shot a video game last week. Here I am changing no for a new scene. This shot of me laughing with my eyes closed and my hair blowing in the wind makes me happy. I wish you all #joy#bliss#love#happiness and tons of enthusiastic #sex
Chairs at the @rosebowl_fleamarket on a rainy day // reminded me of this set (swipe left) that was featured on Wallpaper 卷宗 love the concept, spectacular photography and styling - one of my favorites indeed!!!
Nothing was going as planned this morning and although I just wanted to get back under the covers, I recommitted to my goals and health this week. Funny how the messages you need show up when you do and when you have faith. 🙏🏽 .
Shout out to our fans in L.A. that made progress with us on Saturday, Feb. 9th at ⭐️ Silk’s Run to the Red Carpet ⭐️. Not only did you choose to get up, get outside (in the rain), and go the extra mile but you got to experience the longest-ever red carpet! Thank you for making progress alongside us. You crushed it! 👏 #progressisperfection
Happy Monday! Yesterday while at the Rose Bowl Flea market it started pouring rain and while that could have put a damper on things (get it? 🙃) - we ran into a good friend, had a great convo and ate A LOT of great Mexican food. Which goes to show you that all you need in life is great company, great convo and great food to make any day great. So go make today a great one 🤗
Bu videoya baxanda yəqinki çoxlarınız bu qolun sadəcə öz qapısına vurulmuş bir qol olduğunu anlayır.Hansı ki,belə qolları demək olar ki hər gün görmək olar.Ancaq bu qolun bir hekayəsi var.Elə-belə bir hekayə yox.Demək olar ki,bu qol onun həyatını həll edən bir qol oldu. "Bir qol uğruna yox olan həyat".
Deməli,1994 cü il ABŞ-da futbol üzrə dünya çempionatı keçirdilir.Kolombiya futbol komandası çox iddialı komandalardan biri kimi,bu mundiala yollanmışdır.Belə ki,futbol tarixinin əfsanələrindən olan Peleyə görə,Kolumbiya milli komandası bu kubokun favoritlərindən biri idi.Ancaq çempionat çox pis başlamışdı Kolombiya üçün.Qrupun ilk oyununda Rumuniyaya 3-1 hesabı ilə məğlub olmuşdular.Ancaq onların daha xal itirməyə şansı qalmamışdı.Çünki,o illərdə Kolumbiya mafiyalar tərəfindən idarə olunurdu.Və bu mafiyalar,Kolumbiyada hər şeyi idarə edirdilər.Belə ki,onlar Futboldanda yan keçməmişdilər və öz milli komandalarının çempion olmalarına mərc oyunlarında külli miqdarda pullar yatırmışdılar.Nəhayət ikinci oyun gəlib çatır,onlar ABŞ yığması ilə "ya tamam ya davam" oyununa çıxırlar.Oyun 1-1 davam edərkən Andres Escobarın etdiyi bu səhf nəticəsində oyun 2-1 hesabı ilə başa çatır və Kolumbiya üçün mundial demək olarki başa çatır.Oyundan sonra,A.Escobar verdiyi açıqlamada"Bəli,öz qapıma qol vurdum.Ancaq,bu dünyanın sonu deyil,həyat mənim üçün davam edir" demişdir.Ancaq mafiyalar onun kimi düşünmədi.Bu sözlərindən 10 gün sonra Medelində bir klubdan çıxarkən öldürüldü.Ona 12 əl atəş açılmışdır.Və rəvayətə görə onu öldürən qatil,hər atəşdən sonra "Qoool" deyərək qışqırırmış.Dramatik hekayə deyilmi? Ləqəbi- el caballero del fútbol, yəni- Futbolun Centilmeni olan Andres Escobar 27 yaşında həyata gözlərini əbədi olaraq yumur.Milan klubuna transfer olacağı deyilən Escobar futbolda istəmədən etdiyi bir səhfdən dolayı həyatı sonlanır.Onu vuran qatilə isə 43 il həbs cəzası verilir,ancaq 11 ildən sonra azadlığa buraxılır.
Çoxlarınız bu soyadı bir dəfədə eşidib -Pablo Escobar.Kolumbiyalı narkotik qaçaqmalçısı.Bu soyadın lənətidir ya yox bilmirəm,ancaq hər iki Escobarın həyatı heçdə yaxşı qurtarmıyıb.Sonda isə onu demək istərdim ki, Nur içində yat "Futbolun Centilmeni" ❤️
It’s that time again! LINK IN BIO! Join us or donate to #teambeatms as we walk for a cure on Sunday, April 7th at 9am at the Pasadena Rose Bowl! This year we’ll have a special addition to #teambeatms...OUR SON! We hope to see you there :) @jonahplatt
Still kind of on cloud 9 and in disbelief that I didn’t have any knee pain this weekend during my half marathon. Now let’s keep our fingers crossed that the rest of my training cycle goes that way too 🤞🏼 PS. The LA Marathon is less than 9 weeks away..... 😧😅
You don’t know how much you can push your body UNTIL you push yourself. I’m not a runner, so thanks @omargoodness7 for your encouragement and support through this half marathon (13.1 miles). Now time to let my knees recover 🤣😭. Soooo, LA Marathon next (26.2 miles) ? Maybe? •
One more Pasadena half post before resuming regularly schedule programming.
Less than 2 months ago @dougsix decides he wants to challenge himself to a half, despite never even running a 10k before. I was lucky to have the task of informally coaching him and Doug couldn’t have had a better attitude. Doug put his head down, trusted in our plan and put in the work. Though it was never about running a particular time, I felt he had a 1:45 in him despite the relatively short training cycle. Well Doug showed up yesterday morning and threw down a casual 1:41:28. Doug is a mental warrior. If you see Doug on the streets, give him a high-five.
I hope this is only the beginning of a long period of coaching runners to hit all sorts of different goals. If you have an upcoming race or want to join this weird cult of people who pay money to torture themselves on the roads, don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d love to help however I can.

Some of my best friends and running-mates from #adidasrunnersla ran in the #pasadenahalfmarathon yesterday. It felt so great to be out there dancing, screaming and handing out doughnuts to runners. It doesn’t take much to make someone’s day, it doesn’t hurt to say something kind, it’s actually quite easy...give it a try 😋 I’m ecstatic about running the #lamarathon in March, I feel so fortunate be with @adidasrunners during this journey❤️
In November, I started running once or twice a week with the objective of simply surviving this craziness that my sister talked me into signing up for. Just 3 - 5 miles at a time, trying to improve my stats each run.
Today, I held a pretty smooth rhythm throughout, only breaking my run after mile 7 which is a record for me. I've been told that the first 2 miles are the hardest then it only gets better from there. Not true. The last 3 miles were the hardest. That's when my legs started to stiffen and the overall fatigue settled in. It was even incredibly mentally draining.
There were no longer any bands playing upbeat music, no cheering squads urging you on. Just the muffled sounds of rubber-soled shoes on rapidly warming asphalt. Even the very air felt heavy with weariness. I was tired to the point of needing to deliberately tell myself to "get back to form, get back to form!" Then these words spoken by a staff member reached my ears: "You're almost home!" Yes, indeed, the dome was in sight. I picked up my leaden feet, grit my teeth against the pain, called up what remained of my will-power and burst into tears as I sprinted across the finish line.
Total time: 02:29:37; 11:25min/mi.
I think I now understand why the Apostle Paul likened the Christian journey to a race. It is not easy, it is not always smooth. You do run with others, but in many ways, you also run alone. But the Spirit is always with us, cheering us on when we feel overwhelmed. The beauty of Heaven is that everyone gets a reward no matter how long it takes us to cross the finish line. As long as we run (or walk) faithfully on.
🔥 SO PROUD of the STRIDE FAM 🔥 congratulations, everyone! extra special shoutout to @ejleitz who let me pace her for half the race and who took a PR today! ⚡️👏
DNF stands for “did not finish” and today I took my first DNF. My knee started to buckle around Mile 5, and by Mile 7 I knew it was time to call it. ⚠️ When forced to choose between (a) hobble to finish the race while cursing every step or (b) giving up that race but being uninjured and able to get back to training this week...I had to take the latter. 🤷♀️
Miles picked me up and we made it to the Rose Bowl in time to watch tons of STRIDE friends crush the finish line. The best part of any race I’ve run is watching others triumph over the impossible and cheering for strangers & friends...today I did that. And it was a damn good day. 👏❤️
I don’t know how to put this feeling into words other then AMAZING never in my life have I enjoyed running but sometimes doing things you don’t like can change you in more ways then imagined I can say I had the hardest year last year mental health wise and almost didn’t make it out of it but with the support of my partner who has never left my side and always encouraged me to keep going and the love of my family I’m here and I can only get better this is just the beginning of this AMAZING feeling for me 🥰 #pasadenahalfmarathon#13.1
First half marathon ✔️. My goal was 1:50 and I finished at 1:49:45 at an 8:22 pace and could not be happier! Thanks to all my family, friends and the @glendale_run_club for the support. A little over a year ago, I couldn’t even run for more than 5 mins and maybe 1/4 miles without feeling like I was gonna pass out. To come this far and run for close to 2 hours straight and over 13 miles feels incredible. Anything is possible! #pasadenahalfmarathon#pasadenahalfmarathon2019#halfmarathon
Kinda crazy how music changes your life tbh. Who was your fave surprise guest from tour??
I genuinely can’t pick just one, they were all so good but my faves were Troye, Shawn, Maren, Hayley, Bryan and Robbie (BASICALLY ALL LMAO)

En Pasadena, el lugar de las rosas 😍, está uno de mis estadios favoritos: el Rose Bowl. Debo volver en dos fechas:
1) Para un partido de @miseleccionmx, pero como aficionada 🙌💚❤️
2) Algún 1 de enero, para vivir el genial ‘Tazón de las rosas’ 🌹🏈
AGAINST ALL ODDS
I’ve always said that I love what the game of football brings more than the game itself. The off-season grind, the blood, sweat, tears, and bonds made is what makes the game of football so special to us all. If you’ve ever been a teammate or coach of mine, I got love for you always! -53
Found some time to reminisce on one of the best Dawg Days of my life (as I lay in bed as sick as a dog). We’ll be back #rosebowl Also, shoutout to the big bro for hooking it up. #godawgs#washington#bowdown
