We left town to visit a few colleges with my youngest daughter this past week. When we left, the ground was almost 100% exposed, I thought to myself when we get back I will be able to run at Murphy on dirt, ok maybe mud, but not snow as it was raining and nothing moves snow away faster than rain. What happens while we are gone? Of course it snows, the ground is covered and I don't feel like running as I am tired of cold and I am really starting to absolutely hate the snow.
Since I was moping around a bit, I turned to something that usually helps me when I hit a funk in my running especially when it is a weather related one and that is to read about running. I decided I needed to read about the why of running, which meant I was heading to an old standby which is anything written by George Sheehan, so I looked online at our library and found that they have none of his books, that is too bad. I did come across a few other books and put in a hold for them. But for Sheehan, I turned to the interlibrary loan system. As I was trying to remember his books, I decided to look them up on Amazon and of course that led me to find a few more that I wanted to read, some of which were also available via the interlibrary loan system. The other ones I found, I will file away to read or watch for the future. What's heading my way from the local library:
Position in hold queue - 3
Position in hold queue - 2
And which ones do I want to read or watch which I didn't find at the libraries, here is that wish list:
