What a fantastic read, +Allison Tran​! A formidable woman. As an obsessed person, of course, I focus on how amazingly Lin-Manuel Miranda captures Eliza Hamilton's drive to preserve her husband's legacy.

What a fun and clever idea! Kudos to this smart teen who decided to poll runners on their political preferences- and had some pretty impressive analysis of the results.

I love this service model! It acknowledges customers' need for convenience. I'd love to see more libraries implement this!
Library patrons who find it difficult to make it from the parking lot into the main entrance may now reserve books and have their order delivered to them when they park in front of the building.

Did you know? Red wine contains an antioxidant, resveratrol, that slows the growth of the bacteria that cause acne. It also boosts the antibacterial properties in benzoyl peroxide, an active ingredient in Rodan + Fields acne-fighting UNBLEMISH regimen. So, ladies and gentlemen, I think the conclusion is clear: drink red wine and use Rodan + Fields! ✔️ 😉 Happy #nationaldrinkwineday! 🍷

Thinking of getting a 13.1 decal for my car... I have a magnet, currently, but I worry a little that it might get stolen one of these days. Runners, what do you have on your car?

I have a magnet. It didn't get stolen but did come off in a carwash. Then someone bought me a new one for Christmas :)

Yeah, I'm not a happy camper when I lose sleep... luckily, I have a secret weapon to hide my total exhaustion. 😉😊

Oops! I've been slacking on reporting my distances here! I ran hills repeats on Saturday and with a local Moms Run This Town group on Sunday- please chalk up another 10.2 miles for #dustkickers and #50shades!

+Estelle Holder Yeah, finally! I mean, I've been healthy, but still suffering from residual weakness. Trying to get strong again!

Finally getting a chance to post my Friday run! I was up early to run with the local Moms Run This Town group- a lovely 5 miles with hills, cool temps, and a refreshing sunrise... it had been a while since I'd been up that early for a training run, and I was SO GLAD to do it! Oh, and Starbucks afterwards, of course.

Hot day in Southern California! I managed to get out for a short 2.26 miles for #dustkickers and #50shades before it got too dark this evening. Hot and dry out there, but I had no back pain, so it's a win!

So who's doing the Princess Half Marathon Weekend in a few days? And what are you wearing? I want to live vicariously, so show off those costumes you've been working on!

Mermaid Series 10K in San Diego yesterday! Super fun race, although I'm a bit disappointed to be 7 minutes slower than last year. Illness, injury, blah blah blah.... looking forward to coming back next year and crushing it! It's a beautiful, flat course and a well-organized, friendly race. Had fun in matching mermaid skirts with +Estelle Holder who rocked it with a new PR! :)

So that's 6.2 miles for #dustkickers Estelle, +Reggie Miller +Stephen Lee +Sean Johnson and #50shades +Candace Pflum +Diana Moss +Hanna Garretson +EZ Runner
