I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. I spent mine in the Texas hill country, playing games, toasting marshmallows and getting wrapped up in this book, a new favorite.
But here’s a little bit of what I’ve been watching and reading, in case you’re looking for some recommendations.
A Ballerina’s Tale – Misty Copeland is just the coolest. No discussion necessary.
The Barkely Marathons – This documentary looks at the craziest race ever, the Barkley Marathons. It’s a 130-mile-race in the Tennessee hills (they’re more like mountains). In total the elevation on the course is like climbing and descending Everest twice!!! The whole thing is nuts, but I love hear the stories of the competitors, and the guys who created the race are, um, colorful?
Meditation plus running as a treatment for depression – Sometimes the world would be a better place if we all just took some time to exercise. And not to look a certain way, but to feel a certain way.
I’m so so so excited to start reading “Running: A Love Story.”
What’s the most Googled workout in your state? In related news, what is a dead bug exercise? And really, Illinois, really?
