I’ve ran in a tutu, I’ve attended a Healthy Living Summit, and am currently on the Dream Team for the 2014 Healthy Living Summit (You KNOW you want to mini mingle with me!) I’m not saying I’m perfect (or that any healthy living blogger is), but I am always looking forward to the next adventure, and enjoying the wonderful moments life has to offer.
If the Self magazine controversy didn’t pop up in your newsfeed yesterday or today, go over to Healthy Tipping Point and read what Caitlin had to say on the topic.
And now Self has put out an amazing article themselves! Read it here.
- Self made an honest mistake
- Magazines need filler, the question “Are tutus during a race lame?” is completely understandable.
- My answer is…NO! Tutus are not lame! There are so many themed races out there, and if getting to wear a tutu gets someone off the couch I am all for it!
- The cancer conundrum: Self should have taken the time to look at the bib, and do a follow up question. I can only imagine the fury that would have been released on them if they had managed to tick off the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
This reminded me of back in 2010 (how is that 4 years ago?) when Marie Claire wrote “The Hunger Diaries” a truly ridiculous article and Caitlin wrote a great rebuttal. When that article was written I said “I will never buy Marie Clair again” and I have kept true to my word.
As for Self…I currently receive it for free through Mycokepoints. I’m not going to call and stop receiving my free subscription. However, I’m not sure that when it comes time to renew through my points if I will make the “purchase” again.
What are your thoughts? Were you offended? Or do you think this is being blown out of proportion?
