The perfect run

Yesterday when I got home from work I immediately changed into my running clothes and headed out for a run. It was a perfect fall day and I ran for a whole mile! It was glorious! This morning I am feeling pretty good. I have been feeling some soreness above the knee near the quad but today it seems ok.

Tomorrow I have my follow up appointment with my Orthopedic doctor so I will be sure to ask him all my questions! So far things are looking good though!!

It is (Literary) Wednesday and I have been slacking on my book recommendations.

I just finished The Shack by William P. Young. It is a very thought-provoking book and may not be for everyone. If interested, here is a link to the back cover of the book.

I also just finished How I live Now by Meg Rosoff. My bff Kaylie recommended it because she read it for one of the high school English classes she teaches. It is about a 15 year old girl, Daisy, who travels to visit her cousins in England and war breaks out.

Slowly but surely I am getting back on the book reading train!

Happy Wednesday!

GREAT news on the awesome run, J! So happy for you.

Good luck at the doc today.

I recently finished The Shack. Definitely not my taste, but I can see how some would get a lot out of it.

Yay for awesome runs! Good luck at the dr. today.

I wasn't able to get through The Shack. It was annoying me how "preachy" it became.

Glad you're back into the good running days! :)

I read The Shack last summer - have mixed feelings. It was a good book, but kind of dragged on after a while...got a little repetitive. Definitely thought provoking though.

Glad to hear running is going well! Wahoo!

I have heard pretty good things about The Shack - and athat it is very thought-provoking. I might have to look into reading it! :)

Congrats on the perfect run! I can't wait for some fall weather to roll my way. I got a three day taste of it last week. I'm just hoping I don't have to wait until December for the next one!
