I have a little homework to do....
Lore of Running by by Noakes, MD was already on my shelf. I highly recommend it as a running resource manual/encyclopedia if you are looking for that sort of thing. It does not, however, cover anything on 5K training :( . But it does cover topics from cellular level biology of running, to how to train for a half marathon, marathon or ultra, and is full of biographies (which I love).
I had to reward the kids for going in the crazy bookstores and not tearing every book off the shelves in the process. (Though Matthew did insist on keeping a non-fiction piece about the history of guns. I insisted Dad already has it =D ). We headed to the nearest place for rainy weather play: the mall.
If you know much about me, I really don't hang out in malls very often. But, when in town it helps to burn off some energy from three kids who run at least a marathon every day!
And yes, folks...there was a winner to the trivia question in my last post! Amanda was the first to answer correctly with BABYLEGS! (Sorry, C2, it was rigged. Heh.)
It might have helped her to have kids in the baby/toddler age range to draw experience from :)
inspired blog entry following her guess, you should check it out- complete with video! Maybe we can encourage her to do a giveaway with babylegs arm warmers. ? I personally hope to win these:
I enjoyed every single comment on my last post and want to thank each of you for your assessment of my "stride issues"! You have all been a great help :P , so I awarded points to those comments (unless you got on board pretty late- then you can give yourself 100 points for commenting late) Haha! Also, please drop by Kim's blog at (Just trying) is for little girls. She has a half marathon today!! I am awarding her 1000 points for that and 200 for slipping past my radar yesterday.
Keep track of your points! (unless there's some accountant who likes to do spreadsheets following this blog, willing to keep track for everyone?) I am working on a "prize" for the most points at year's end. You can bet it's going to be interesting.
And the trivia question for this post? Not too hard...1000 points for the first comment to answer correctly. Which year for the Boston Marathon will April 18, 2011 be? (how many times held)
Now..off to start doing my homework! It's going to be a busy reading week.
