So the half marathon training is ... I think even just writing "going" might be too strong. "Occurring," I guess, has the right amount of passivity? Yesterday was a break day, and I'm scheduled for four miles today, but I "hiked" a famous mountain in "Austin" today ("hiked" in that I stopped at the base of the first peak of the easy side -- hey, I'm afraid of heights, okay?) and I am thrashed.
Speaking of my total inability to be a badass, I read a book last night called The Forest of Hands and Teeth. (Thanks, Mormon Child Bride.) I just want it noted for the record that I think I could totally survive a zombie outbreak, but probably not an apocalypse. Zombie apocalypse? Yikes.
In case you're wondering, The Forest of Hands and Teeth was great. Yes, I had some issues with plot developments that I don't think made a ton of sense, but in general I don't let stuff like that bother me if the story and writing is good enough. Highly recommended, friends.
