But man, when you go superhero…”~From To Be a Runner By Martin Dugard (seriously go read this book)

I don’t know if it was the fresh mani pedi I gave myself before bed last night (yay pink), the 9 hours of sleep, or the beautiful weather this morning, but everything feels fresh today. Hopeful. Brilliant. I sent an email right before I left work yesterday and today it yielded fabulous results, crossing a huge to-do off my list and giving me the momentum I needed to kick today’s petutie (pronounced: peh tOOt ee).
Since I had such a wonderful time reading Martin Dugard’s memoir through running (see AMAZING quote from above), I decided to try another. New York Public Library’s Mid-Manhattan branch has a pretty sizable section of sports books on the 5th floor (found where the 300 signs meet the 900 signs, I was confused too). If you’re an athlete and are looking for some inspiration in your sport without dropping any moolah, I highly recommend it. I picked up Bart Yasso’s My Life on the Run. I’m super excited to read this one, as he’s a great contributor to Runner’s World (obV my favorite magazine ever), and apparently he was a groomsman at my aunts wedding. So, even though he doesn’t know I exist, it’s like we’re besties, right?
Tonight I’m headed out for another 5-6 miler. I haven’t decided which direction I’ll head out on yet, but I think it might be a park day…either way, I’m totally going superhero today.
