Hello again, readers and writers of Fit is a Feminist Issue!
I wrote last weekend about finding my fitness spirit animal. I’m happy to announce that I’ll now be writing on a monthly basis for the blog, every second Saturday of the month!
I thought I’d also take this opportunity to introduce myself somewhat more formally.
My name is Tracy de Boer and I am happily residing in Toronto, ON. I am completing my PhD in political philosophy with particular focus on property theory and feminist theory. (An unusual combination, yes, which is why I’m working on it!) I am also a freelancer who writes on social, cultural, and political issues and am looking to produce a podcast that covers similar issues.
My relationship to fitness has been an on-again-off-again one for much of my life. Over the last month or so, I decided to recommit to my health, fitness, and overall wellbeing in a more serious way. It seemed to me that writing about the experience would be a great way to keep myself motivated, accountable, and also provide me the chance to laugh at myself throughout the challenges and achievements.
I look forward to writing here and reading your reflections as well!
