I can’t believe I’m training for a third marathon! We moved to Cincinnati over a year and a half, I’ve watched the marathon twice and ran the 10K last year, so I’d say it’s time I run the full marathon.
Hearing no recommendations from my 2018 Book Recap, I put together a short 2019 Book List. Just like last year, I put together this list based on NYT Best Sellers, other website lists (Amazon, GoodReads, etc), leftovers from last year’s list, and recommendations from bloggers I follow.
I listened to Little Princes by Conor Grennan and loved it! Not only is it a touching true story, but it’s read by Conor himself. There are several good audiobook narrators (I loved My Korean Deli). But,. there is just something special about a true story, read by the author. For instance, the story of…
Since I’m in-between marathon training, I’ve been walking Sophie more (see number 15). And for some reason I prefer to listen to books/podcasts when I walk and music when I run. So I’m sharing the podcast I’ve been listening to and a few audiobooks I’ve finished.
I read a ton of books in 2018! Some of them were on my 2018 book list, some of them not. Some great, some good, and some so bad I didn’t finish. I can say that 99% of the books I read were borrowed from the library.
Wanted to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas! I appreciate all your support this past year. I started this blog to document the renovation of the Shoreview House, but it quickly morphed into me just wanting to ramble about everything. Then we announced we were moving Cincinnati and it turned into a way for…
My last book review from my 2018 Book List is Multipliers by Liz Wiseman. It’s a business/leadership book about how some leaders multiply results, while some (often unintentionally) diminish results.
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.
