Just a few days ’til my first half-marathon in Moab — feeling strong, feeling confident, I Can Do This!

  • Ran 8 miles or more, 8 days of the past two weeks – right on track!
  • Banged out more than 100 miles in March (so far) AND surpassed the 300 mile mark YTD
  • Started cross-training on a stationary bike 5 days now – nothing serious, just mixing up my running regimen

 

Movie(s) of the Week

‘The English Patient’ (1996 Oscar Best Picture winner) – complicated story set in North Africa; the Saharan aerials are inspiring

‘The Constant Gardener’ (2005 Golden Globe Best Picture nominee) – thriller set in Kenya; Rachel Weisz gives a WOW performance

Both Ralph Fiennes flics, both set in Africa…but it’s Fiennes’ female co-stars that make these films worth the watch:  Kristin Scott Thomas (Oscar-nominated in ‘The English Patient’) & Rachel Weisz (Oscar winner for ‘The Constant Gardener’)

 

Old School, New School

  • Signed for my first library card since high school

  • Joined the iPhone community this week, transferred my landline # to cell
