i seriously fractured my foot running, and honestly, i am just done with trying to make myself into a runner. i wanted a challenge, but every time i've tried i've ended up injuring myself in some capacity. i'm just coming to terms with that, and i will challenge myself to something with which i really struggle but enjoy: hiking.
i've been hiking before but i have to stop very often on the way to the top because i get tired so easily. but i love the reward at the end of being able to bask in the beauty of an amazing mountain view. since i am in the appalachians, i am in the perfect place to work on building my strength and stamina. i will be changing my 30x30 to reflect this.
i am back to paying monthly tithes, and i feel really happy about being obedient.
i considered doing nanowrimo with madi, but i realized i just wouldn't have the time this month with the assignments i have been given. i am cheering her and anyone else who does this on, and i am hoping i can do it next november!
my favorite read from last week.
i am a near-daily red wine drinker, so i joined the vinesse wine club about a month ago. i have to say that i am very impressed so far. i've only tried 3 of the 6 wines that came in the box, but i absolutely loved all of them. i usually like my wine super duper dry, but i definitely enjoyed the smoother montepulciano d'abbruzo and gracenote pinot noir, especially since my mouth is already dry from the cold!
