Today is going to be short, but before I get started, today is the last day to enter Meg's Yurbuds giveaway over at Watch MeGo Run. It's quick and easy, so enter HERE.
Ok, now that that's over with, I'm going to steal a phrase from Meg's most recent post and say...
I Love Me Some Books
It's true. I definitely enjoy reading. I read a lot of fantasy fiction, things like the Harry Potter series, Inheritance Cycle, Old Kingdom Series, Godless World series, and such. However, recently I've been reading quite a bit on triathlons and running. You may recall I got the Triathlete's Training Bible as well as Dean Karnazes' book 50/50 for my birthday. Well, about a week ago I got yet another book in the mail (an overly delayed christmas present) - Christopher McDougall's 'Born To Run.' I must say, the athletic section of my personal library is exploding right now!
I will review each book as I finish them, but at this point I must say I love each and every one of them. The Training Bible is packed with great information; I will most likely be re-reading sections for decades to come. Dean's 50/50 makes use of so many funny little stories that it's hard to not laugh aloud while you're reading. And Christopher's Born To Run is thus far an incredibly well written piece; there's no doubting his skill as a writer!
Like I said though, today is short. After a week of rest due to this cold, I'm heading back to the pool in an hour and then I'm going to take the day and work on a running post. Remember how I went to see a world class marathoner last Sunday to get tips on my running? Well, the post for that is quite long, so it's taken me some time to write it. Hopefully it will be up tomorrow.
1. Are you a reader? If so, what kind of things do you like to read?
I'm a fan of fantasy fiction.
2. Have you ever read multiple books at the same time?
Until now, I've never done so. I always thought I'd get stories mixed up. But I have four books going now (the three mentioned above and The Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb).
3. What are your plans for this weekend? Anything exciting? Any races?
My goal is simply to get back to the gym without worsening my cold.
Stay fit. Stay healthy.
