After almost three years of living here, I finally installed some office curtains and blinds! It’s also been a long time since I wrote about anything house related. Since moving in, I haven’t touched the office much, other than hanging my medal rack. You’ll notice that even our (very expensive) diplomas still aren’t hung. At…
I didn’t realize the 2020 Valentine’s Hearts “R” Running 5K was the weekend after the Cyclones 10K when I signed up. I don’t think anyone would suggest running races back-to-back weekends. Not to mention running 7+ snowy miles and swimming 1000+ yards the day before. But that didn’t seem to effect our performance…
Last weekend Nolan and I ran the 2020 Cyclone’s 10K in downtown Cincinnati. It was our first race of 2020 and Nolan’s first 10K race.
Instead of writing a post after each book, I thought I’d simply write a shorter recap at the end of each month. My long 2020 list puts me at about ~2 books/month and I’m already behind. Sophie is very disappointed.
Looking at my 2019 book recap, I feel I did a pretty good job getting through my 2019 book list! Between reading books and listening to audiobooks I made through a lot!
New year, same love for making lists. This year’s book list contains a few books leftover from last year’s list and several new ones. In no particular order…
Trust Exercise by Susan Choi just won the 2019 National Book Award for Fiction. So, naturally, I added it to my library queue. To my surprise, it was almost immediately filled. It’s not a super long book so I brought it with me on my recent trip back to Minnesota for Christmas.
Over the weekend Nolan and I ran the 2019 Jingle Bell 5K in Covington, KY. It was Nolan’s target race from his couch-to-5K training. After running the Thanksgiving 5K in 33:33, his goal was to run it faster than 33:33.
I stumbled upon this Empress Josephine Book while in an old bookstore in Paris. I read some of it while we had an afternoon glass of rosé. When we got home I checked it out from the library.
Before feasting, Nolan and I ran the 2019 Life Time Turkey Day 5K at the Deerfield, OH Life Time Fitness. The weather was great for running, the route was good, and Nolan got a 5K PR!
