I Have a Small Problem + A Book Review

Posted on: July 31, 2011

On the agenda today was a 6 mile run.  No problem.  Or so I thought.  I still am getting light-headed and nauseous around mile 5.  I don’t know what’s going on.  I ate about 1/2 hour before I started and I had water with me.  Maybe I need to start bringing Gatorade too.  I don’t know.  I’m very confused and I’m starting to get nervous about my 10 miler and half marathon.  I really would prefer if I don’t throw up while running 😦  How embarrassing would that be?? 

I’ll figure it out I’m sure.  Running’s all about figuring out what works for you, right?  Trial and error!!  Needless to say, 6 miles turned in to 5 followed by a lot of prayer that breakfast would stay in my stomach.


Book Review

I remember watching this movie when I was younger and I loved it.  Well, a few weeks ago I was wandering around the library and ran across the book.  I started it right away and couldn’t put it down.  The book goes more into detail about the horrors of being stuck in a foreign country with no way to get out.

Question of the night:

What is a recent movie you just watched and enjoyed? <—- we just finished The Lincoln Lawyer and it was really good!!
