One of the things I was most excited about this week
was that I finished my book! I know it doesn't sound that exciting but I hadn't read a book for fun in a LONG time!
The fun part about reading a book that is also a movie is going to see the movie afterward (kind of like a reward to finishing the book). I did that with the Hunger games, Something borrowed, Marley and Me (which I admit was a bad decision to see the movie after already knowing how the book ended. Why did I put myself through that ?), and many more. But now I don't know if I want to relive the emotional roller coaster that was Me Before You by seeing it all play out live on the big screen. I'm sure those of you who have read the book know what I mean. But on the other hand I feel like I am emotionally invested in these characters and that I should go to the movie. I guess I have until June 3rd to decide.
Just a side note: This book is not about running but the main character has a boyfriend who is into marathons and triathalons, and I find it funny her perspective of his training as a non-runner. At one point she jokes about how she finds it funny that when she goes out to dinner with him and his friends she is the only one that orders french fries and she doesn't even feel bad about it as she eats them in front of every one!
The other highlight of my week was doing the Girls On The Run 5K. Because of all the foot pain I've been having, I was sure I would be in pain by mile 2 (that's usually when the pain starts when I am on my walks), but it didn't! I got through the entire race pain free. The only painful part was walking around the race afterwards because I still have the blister on my heel that I got from walking the trail last Sunday while I was searching for my phone. I have to say this is the first time I showed such restraint and hadn't popped the blister. The only reason I hadn't popped it was because I knew I had the race this weekend and figured it would hurt more if I did. We have to remember that our body uses blisters to protect us from worse pain!
After the race we went home and waited for this major thunderstorm that never came. We were suppose to get thunder, lightening, and even hail. I have to say I am glad that we did not get any hail but I was looking forward to a good thunder storm. We could see the dark clouds in the distance and I know it rained hard in neighboring towns, but we didn't get anything here. Maybe tonight? -M
