I am reading four books, but each one mindfully (based on my own new book on Mindfulness), capturing my passions:
The first book is So You Think You’re A Boston Red Sox fan, by Bill Nowlin. This book is a nice read for any Boston sports fan as it is filled with fun facts about the Red Sox and it definitely tests your Sox history and trivia.
The second book is Race Everything, by Bart Yasso, which explains how to complete any race regardless of the distance, in any environment and, most importantly, how to have fun while running! I have found that Yasso’s latter point (having fun) is truly the key to sustained long term running.
The third book, Aged Healthy + Wise, by Coventry Edwards-Pitt which features lessons from qualitative research with inspirational elders regarding how they arranged their lives in their golden years. As I’m getting up there, I need to learn these lessons.
And, finally, I have been enjoying Not Without Peril, 150 years of Misadventure on the Presidential Range of New Hampshire, by Nicholas Howe. Climbing is fun, and I enjoy hiking as it is very effective cross-training for running; however, it can be dangerous. Some of Howe’s stories, make you a bit more cautious about tackling a mountain. Preparation is key!
