1. I am still doing a weekly pushup challenge with all my friends myself. I am still improving so it is still fun. I will quit when I don't see anymore progress. My goal is to get to 50. If you want to so me do 40 pushups complete with sound effects, kids yelling in the background, and my spoiled house-cat Rocky Ballerina Walks-with-a-Limp One Dot cleaning his paws in the background, you can check it out HERE.
2. I went to a wedding last weekend for a co worker, the Coldplay song Yellow was sung at the wedding. I have had it stuck in my head ever since. I had to go and buy it on iTunes so that I could get the words right when singing it to myself. Want to get it stuck in your head? Go ahead..listen to it.
I mentioned it at work and found out at least three other people had the same problem. Catchy song!
3. I just finished reading Once a Runner by John Parker. If you haven't read it yet it is a great read. Thanks to my Mom for getting it for me. Here a few quotes I picked out of the book that I liked
“He ran his hand up and down his left achilles tendon. Very tender; better pay attention to it and back off if it gets any worse. Maybe ice it. The old Injury Evasion Fandango. Did it ever end?”
“Running to him was real, the way he did it the realest thing he knew. It was all joy and woe, hard as diamond; it made him weary beyond comprehension. But it also made him free.”
“The key was not how fast he could run, but how fast he could run while tired."
What song do you have stuck in your head lately? Have you read Once A Runner?
