Some good reminders: "Are you sabotaging your own happiness?"

Starting my morning with Steve Gollnick (of Hubcap)'s solo effort, Chapter and Verse. I've loved this album since first listen when it came out about 4 or 5 years ago. Steve's immediately recognizable voice, the collection of wonderful musicians on board, and amazing song writing (my favorites include "Numbers and Such," "San Andreas," and "Three Cheers Slaterville") make it one for the permanent rotation. I really miss getting to see Hubcap and Steve play live - I never saw a bad show from them. The fact that Steve is also a great guy doesn't hurt. If you don't own it, get it.

I bunch of books arrived for me at the library yesterday, and I can't wait to get started on them. This months picks include Chi Running (recommended by a Y&Y reader!), Hellhound On His Trail, and, for my mystery fix, Caught. I'll let you know how they are!

Also, someone recently wrote in asking me for book recommendations, so maybe I will start writing about some of my favorites. The one that first comes to mind, although I haven't read it in years, is Midnights Children. I'm not a huge fan of Rushdie across the board, but Midnight's Children is a beautiful book, and was responsible for beginning my lifelong fascination with India. I should actually re-read it soon...

Today's planned workout: 45 min swim, 30 min run. Today's actual workout: headed there post-work, so it remains to be seen. But, I can tell you that yesterday was epic! Morning bootcamp, evening yoga, and a soccer game - and it felt great! Further (unscientific) proof that the human body was designed for movement, not sitting at a desk all day.

Glad you're picking up Chi Running! You'll have to let us know what you think. I've been using their half marathon training guide (loosely) but I'm really enjoying it so far.
