After finishing my last 2018 race, I thought it’d be a good idea to list out all the 2019 races I plan on clapping in. I mean participating in. 😛
Last Saturday I completed the Jingle Bell 5K my last race of 2018. Even though Becca and I said we were going to take it easy, we managed a 9:50 pace, my official time being 30:33. The race benefits the Arthritis Foundation and drew roughly 2000 runners. Or should I say 2000 santas? Seriously, there were…
From my Cincinnati book list, Calling Me Home, is a book I requested from the library while I was waiting for others to come in. It is a predictable, but touching story about an unlikely friendship between two women and their journey to Cincinnati.
November was one busy month! Between the marathon weekend, reading a few books (Everybody Always and Memento Park) and Thanksgiving, we hardly had time to sit down. We did have enough time to put up our tree and some Christmas decorations and are currently planning our Europe trip.
I ran my first Thanksgiving Day 10K and set a new 10K PR! The weather was cool, the route was challenging and I felt strong.
Everybody Always by Bob Goff wasn’t even on my 2018 book list, but somehow ended up in my library queue. With the country being so divided right now, we can all become “love in a world full of setbacks and difficult people.”
While in town for the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon we snuck in visits to two Indianapolis Breweries. I wish we had more time because the two we visited were great!
The 2018 Indianapolis Monumental Marathon was last weekend. After 18 weeks of training, including a few half marathons, and the very anxious week before, it’s all over. It’s a weird feeling- I feel so accomplished but also sort of sad that it’s over.
September and October 2018 flew by! So much so that I totally missed posting a September currently! I think that’s the first month I’ve missed since my inaugural currently post in January 2016. PS I still use those bike shoes and I never made either of those recipes again. Anyway, back to October 2018…
The marathon countdown has begun!
