You may have noticed the little counter in the corner of my blog. It's tracking the number of Whitney finalists I've read. There are 35 finalists and I'm trying to read them all. In order to be able to vote in each category, I have to have read them all by April 23. There are some who read books so fast that reading that many books wouldn't be a challenge. This is fairly daunting for me.
When I was in high school, I ran the mile in track. Once, when one of my teammates was sick, I stepped in and ran the 2 mile. I came in second to last and felt like I was going to die. Now I'm well on my way to being an old lady and I've decided to run the Salt Lake half marathon. I've heard of some people going crazy as they get older and it's possible I might be one of those people. The Salt LLake half marathon is on April 21.
So I'm reading and running and running and reading.
Some days I feel strong and optimistic and some days I feel slow and my legs feel like rubber. Some books have been excellent but a couple have not really been my thing.
But I'm determined. And I'm doing my best to put meals on the table and clean socks in the drawers.
Any suggestions on what I should do with all my spare time toward the end of April?
Just kidding. I'm sure there will be plenty of things I've neglected that will be calling my name.
