Elite Runner Alexi Pappas talks about the rituals we spend so much time doing.

Retying Shoes

I look back and remember things like how much time I used to spend doing my hair and planning notes to boys I think it’s so silly now to think that tiny me considered strongly the difference between love and luv and between one and two ponytails but now I spend all that time yes still fixing my hair and selecting proper words and also a new thing which is to tie and retie my shoes again and again and I bet one day I’ll think that’s silly too.
