Running Mode

A quote from Mr. Walt Disney -All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.  The count down has begun!  In 136 days what will you be doing?  If nothing comes to mind, why not join me and thousands others as we embark on the 2013 Disney Half Marathon.  Check out Disney Run, there are a variety of races the whole family can enjoy from 5K, Half Marathon, Full Marathon, to the Goofy-which one will you choose?

.

With a little over 4 months to go, my training is in full gear.  To keep my discipline focused I picked up “Paula Radcliffe’s How To Run”.  The accomplished marathon and competitive runner knows a thing or two about the sport.  In addition to the book I came across a great app that helps manage my running-MapMyRun.  It logs in my mileage, overall time, average pace, and calories burned-love it!

.

I run to feel GREAT and to clear my head.  I LOVE the high I get from finishing a race-what’s your reason to run?

Enjoy and thanks for viewing!

Actual books vs. e-books

Call me old fashion but when it comes to books I prefer actual books.  Nothing better than cuddling up to a great book, turning it’s pages and getting lost in the story.  Even my weekly escapes to my local bookstore, Barnes & Nobles, are all about the simple pleasures.  A book and I enjoying some down time-love it!  Reading a couple of  recent articles in the NYTimes brings much concern.  With the enormous push to e-readers I fear that actual books with become obsolete.  I am not saying it’s going to happen overnight, however future generations won’t know the simple contentment.

What’s your preference actual books or e-books?

Here’s a NYTimes article that covers this topic.
