As I've taken time off from running, I've been spending more time with my books. I don't mind that; I'm a voracious reader. I was reading a lot of non-fiction earlier this school year, but now I've gone back to my roots.
My all-time favorite has always been Stephen King, and I've been indulging my obsession quite a bit this month.
|I had to reread this one, because the sequel came out and it's been too long!|
|It's been awhile since SK has written real horror, and this was just what the doctor ordered!|
|I'm in the middle of this one. Slow at first, but once it picks up, it's awesome.|
|Well-written and eerie. I highly recommend this one, and "Horns".|
|His 'n hers at the beach. (Mine is the BOGA!)|
|I'm at the beach in October. Jealous?|
I'm disappointed, but I also need to face reality. I'm not ready for the full; I've had too many setbacks. I'd rather run the half and enjoy it than struggle through a full I'm not ready for, possibly injuring myself and definitely doing some mental damage, too.
In January, I set my resolutions. My original goal this year was to run an "extra-long" long run to see how it felt, and then decide on if a full was in my future. I've accomplished that much.
|My 2013 NY Resolutions.|
Running is a life-long commitment. I don't want risk being able to run for a long, long time. In the long run (haha), this is one season that got a little off-track, but there will be many seasons to come.
How do you enjoy spending your downtime?
