The opening bars of Rick Ross’“Rich Forever” off of the Rich Forever mixtape is my favorite track of his of all time. The opening grabs my attention everytime: “I remember being blind to it / till the day I put my mind to it…” There is truth in those Rick Ross lyrics.
Be clear y’all, I’ve never really been a “true”Rick Ross fan. When you’re a fan of an artist, you go out of your way to attend their shows, wear their merchandise and spread the gospel of their movement to your friends. Now Outkast? I am an Outkast FAN—I own every album the duo has ever released, have seen them in concert a couple of times and even still have pieces from the now defunct Outkast clothing line.
Despite being a non-Rick Ross fan, there is something about his music and lyrics on certain tracks that are enough to make me want to listen to his music. I used to think it was the fact that Rozay has near flawless production on >80% of his tracks. But now, I know it’s deeper than that. Rick Ross has a way with words that draw me in.
Back in January of this year, I set my mind to accomplish a goal of running 1000 miles in 2014. Back then, it seemed almost impossible. I thought about it for a while and then decided to actually do it. Once I made up my mind, I figured at minimum that setting the 1000 mile goal would help motivate me to keep running, continue marathon training and living an active lifestyle.
Last week I hit the 800 plus miles ran in 2014 milestone. I now only have 200 miles more to run in 2014 to hit that 1000 mile goal.
If you’re unfamiliar with Sir Ratchness and Freshalina’s hilarious weekly pop culture recap ‘Neck of the Woods’podcast here’s a chance to learn more plus do something healthy.
Back in June I shared with y’all some of the challenges and tips I use for motivation to keep running [READ: #RapOnTheRun: Motivation And Running]. Staying focused to train my mind and body to run 26 miles isn’t easy at times. One of the tips I talked about was how inspiration from some of the favorite social media accounts I follow helps me stay on task.
During this weekend’s 13 mile run, I listened to the latest episode of ‘Neck of the Woods’, where Sir Ratchetness announced the first Operation Get Chose challenge. The goal of Operation Get Chose is to “motivate everyone to find their true yanking potential and become the best they are suppose to be.”The first challenge is titled #OGCDetox.
Sir Ratchetness’#OGCDetox challenge is super easy. All you have to do is work in at least one cup of detox water (just one y’all!) and post it on Instagram. It doesn’t even have to just be a detox water (like with lemons and berries). You can also post a smoothie or a shake. When you post it on the ‘Gram, use the hashtag #OGCDetox. Each picture counts as one entry. You can also refer folks to the Operation Get Chose account on Facebook or the ‘Gram and that will count as an entry too.
The winner of this Operation Get Chose challenge receives a Nutribullet! Y’all know those Nutribullets can be expensive, so the #OGCDetox is an easy way to do something healthy for yourself and a chance to win a cool prize at the same time.
I usually drink about a gallon of water each day but plain water can get boring. So far, I’m enjoying seeing what other folks are posting in the #OGCDetox hashtag for some new ideas.
