@ChrisMortenson lol :)@JillianLaura me too@avantgame it overwhelms me too. I have a seizure disorder, and can only be there for a short while. I imagine post concussive is similar
Retweeted by Jane McGonigal@katbamkapow totallydoes anyone else find lighting/acoustics in Apple stores overwhelming? It's one of the only places I feel post-concussion still, every time.@Melissandre_L lol just remember that is IDEAL running weather!! it' the perfect temperature your body LOVES it!!@GameMakerMiller I like this motto :)@Melissandre_L I won't go out under 20 farenheit though@Melissandre_L I love shopping for winter outdoor running clothes to motivate! Earmuffs wrap essential!!@Melissandre_L it's tough!! How cold is it? Below freezing? Sometimes I switch to yoga til weather improves! Otherwise layers and run midday

Stop being so self-critical! enjoy resting!!!One week after finishing a marathon, I'm eating lots of chocolate and feeling "OHHH I'M SO OUT OF SHAPE WAAAAAH" ... have to remind myself:@DanielSolis sometimes Kiyash and I see stuff and we're like "That's so Death Note"@DanielSolis you know I realized after I tweeted, I am talking about the movies and you probably aren't.
