September Miles: 31 miles.Races: Zombie Fun Run 5k. It was a fun little 5k. Just like most Zombie Runs, the “Survivors” got a 2 minute head start. We had flags tucked into our waste bands that the “Zombies” could collect (if they could catch you). I crossed the finish line with flag intact. I also got a 5k PR that morning. It was a good morning.
Next Race: Nothing on the horizon.Reading: Michael Vey; The Rise of the Elgen, by Richard Paul Evans. I’ve kind of resisted this series. Because, even though I’m a Mormon, I don’t read Mormon authors unless their name is Orson Scott Card. But my kids decided that we needed to go to the pre-release party for the 3rd book. So we went, met Mr. Evans and had our books signed. I was so impressed with how down to earth Mr. Evans was, so I stared reading the series. They’re not bad. Obviously written for a younger audience, but a pretty good story.
Listening: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving.Latest Obsession: We dropped BB off at the MTC (Missionary Training Center) last Wednesday (I’ll post pictures soon. So far we haven’t heard a word from her. As a missionary, she can’t call home, and so we’re anxiously awaiting a letter or an email… Something!
Netflix Habit: I just finished Alphas, it was really good, and I was sad to find out that the cliff-hanger at the end of season 2 will never be resolved because the series was cancelled… It’s Firefly all over again… (sob!) sorry… I’ll be ok…Blessing: I’m so happy that my younger kids have such a great example in their older sister. BB is going to be great as a missionary (As a part of the largest Missionary force in the history of the planet. Over 70,000 young men and women).
Irk: I watched “The Cove” about the slaughter of Bottlenose Dolphins in Taiji, Japan, and now I’m all ticked off and stuff! I wrote a blog about my feelings… but I have yet to post it. I should probably do some editing of naughty words before I do.
Oooo Ahhh: I found some new running pants at REI, totally on sale! So now I can get rid of my old, 1980’s style wind pants this winter! Can I get an Amen!?!One Last Thing: I love this!
