Many of you asked about the book I am reading for my new, real life book club. Well, for June we are reading A Death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger (the author of The Perfect Storm).
I just started reading it a few days ago and I not that far into the book, but basically it is a non fiction piece about the Boston Strangler (full review by The New York Times). Not exactly your most appealing book out there. Why the club picked a book about a strangler to read is beyond me, when there are so many other good, fun, non scary books out there! That being said I am going to give it a chance and hopefully I wont get too scared.
The book club meeting isn't until early June so I have some time. I mentioned before that this book club was organized by my high school alumnae association, where my high school was an all girls catholic school. I can just picture the scene I am going to walk into in a couple of weeks. Hopefully it wont be a bunch of crazy old women.
Let's hope that next months book will be better.
The weather this week has been steamy with temps in the mid 80s and mornings have been around 60F! Yesterday I did a hill workout just to mix things up. I chose a steep hill and did 7 repeats before heading home. This morning I woke up with sore hips - I guess I need to work on my hip strength! This mornings run was 1 mile easy, 2 miles fast, 1 mile easy.
Now that the weather is so nice, there are so many walkers and runners out. Every morning I pass an older woman walking and I always say Good morning. Well she never says anything back and I thought that she was just being rude and ignoring me but this morning when I saw her I realized she is wearing headphones. She obviously can't here me and that is why she hasn't replied. I guess I should have paid closer attention!
Hope you are having a great week and getting some good runs in! Happy Wednesday!
