We recently started reading the book "Running on Empty" by Marshall Ulrich, one of the world's greatest endurance athletes. So far we are about half-way through the book and we are both really enjoying it. It's funny because we each have a copy so we are racing each other to see who can finish it first. The page number we are on is top secret, but I know I am ahead (this is Bethany). You can get more info/buy the book HERE.
The book touches upon many different ultras and endurance/adventure feats completed by Marshall but the main event of the book is his 52-day run across the United States of America that he completed when he was 57 years old! So far the book has been very exciting to read and his descriptions are so clear that I feel like I'm right there with him (although I'm glad I'm not because it sounds so grueling!) As soon as we are done with the book we will post a final review and since we have 2 copies, we will give one away.
Now for the wedding update! 5 days to go! Just about everything is all set and ready! We have so many FUN running related things that will be part of our wedding day but I don't want to post anything, just in case any of our guests are reading. I don't want to spoil our silly surprises. The funny thing is, a lot of the running-themed ideas I got for the wedding came from my mother's sarcasm, for example, cowbells for favors! (We already told you about the cowbells so it's okay to mention it). We will try to post a "just married" picture on Friday since I can take a pic on my blackberry and email it directly to the blog. So be on the look out this Friday for a post entitled "Just Married!"
Hope you all had a great weekend!!!
