I finished Night by Elie Wiesel. What a heavy and difficult book.

am—2.25 A nice run w/ Addi and Ry. Got to hear a story full of colorful language.

pm—5.25 Warm and cool and some running during the 6-minute test. Kids are showing improvement after a month of training.

I finished The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt. It’s a throwback western about brothers who are bounty hunters. Runs the gamut of emotions.

pm--10 Stayed at the school during practice to chat w/ the sprinters and watch a few throwers. I ran when I got home and did a loop around the Canyons and added to Dixie Drive w/ pickups. I felt okay.

am--2.25 A good run w/ the light skeleton crew. These runs are great. 

pm--6 Ran around during the 400s, jumping in here and there but mostly some clockwise work. 

It happened last week, but I'm just blogging it now. I finished The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. Knowing the backstory creates an ominous read. Nonetheless, there is some great advice in the book, and I can't help but tear up every time I read about leaving memories for his children, especially the fact that he was the first man to ever love his daughter. As a dad of 3 daughters, I concur.

am--2.25 Nice run w/ a bigger crew to the bank and back, basically. 

pm--6 I ran around here and there during the tempo work. Probably should've just jumped in w/ a group because running clockwise on a track gets me going.

am--2.25 A nice run w/ the senior crew.

pm--6 Some running while the kids did some repeats. It was chilly out. 

I also finished The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and noticed that the book moves forward nicely as long as Huck and Jim are moving. Once they hit Pikesville, everything stops. That being said, I still get a good laugh out of Tom's antics.

am—9 Loop around Foremaster on the long run w/ some pickups. It was a nice wintertime run.

I finished another book—The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin. This is the first of 3 Hugo winners for this author, all from the same series. It was an okay read but not exceptionally memorable.

pm--4.25 Run towards Sullivan and back w/ Brinley and Jenna. Most people did their longer run this morning, so they could go to the game. I erged 2k (8:50) after. It's been a while since I've rowed.
