    Thank you for including my post, Christine. This one was close to my heart (and nerves!).

    I just finished Gone Girl – in about a day! It was so good. I too, intend to read more books this year, so I’m well pleased I’m one down out of 12 (yes, not very ambitious). Good luck with deciding on which races you’re doing!

      Your target number of books is still higher than mine. I’m aiming for 4-5 books. Aiming low in hopes of surpassing my expectations :-)

    Ahh! I played with the idea of doing Toronto, but it’s the same weekend as our annual Vancouver running trip. Just clicked on the posts that I haven’t read already this week, great round up!

      I am seriously considering Toronto. Eeck! I’m not sure if it will work out but it would be a lot of fun.

    Great list as usual! I loved Lisa’s post about surrendering. And 50 reasons why other people’s kids suck is perfectly funny. BTW – your kids suck, too. :) Hehehe!

    I’ve been meaning to read Gone Girl. I’ve heard so many good things. I just got 2 books from the library as part of my read 6 books in 2013 project. Haven’t cracked ‘em open yet….oh oh!

      That post from Scary Mommy was hilarious and so so true! Especially the one about your kids sneezing directly in my kid’s face. I just picked up Match from the library today. I hope I get to read it before it’s due back!

    Excellent round up, as usual! I’m very excited to read Scary Mommy’s post b/c the last one you turned me onto was so funny!

    I’ve run Broad St. 2x and it’s lots of fun (not to mention fast). Plus, I love Phila. Let me know when you decide on the spring race. And Toronto–you should go for it!

    My very favorite book from 2012 was The Light Between Oceans. SO. GOOD. Get it!

      Oh! I just looked up that book and it looks great! Thanks for the suggestion. Now I’m leaning towards doing Broad Street since the Brooklyn half is the same weekend as BLEND and I kind of really want to go to BLEND (and I think you should too). Toronto is still kind of in the mix. We’ll see! Will definitely let you know when I decide!

      I remember seeing a snippet of one of Danielle LaPorte’s videos and she has the kind of persona that draws you in immediately. I’ve only read the first 10 pages or so but I’m kind of excited about it. Happy weekend to you Heidi!

    So I might see you in Toronto? ;)

    Great link up…

    I’ve been loving my book: Savor – Mindful Eating, Mindful Life.

    Have a great weekend!

    I just started the Happiness Project. So far I like it, but I am a YA Lit fan. Next on my list is the Divergent series!

      I LOVED the Divergent series. I may have read both books 3 times…

    Yes! Loved Lisa’s post. And I’m heading over to the discomfort one… perfect timing for me with race weekend here. I am hoping to read more books this year too, although so far my ever-growing list is related to nutrition, health and running. I need to throw some fun reads in there!

      You’re going to do great this weekend. There are so many books that I want to read! I really need to find the time to read them.

    As always, thank you for the links!! You seriously always find the best posts from the week (and so many seem to be ones that I missed). Heading over to Lisa’s now – somehow I missed hers!!! Have a wonderful weekend with those boys of yours! Are you planning some nice runs in this gorgeous weather we will be having!??!

      Definitely read Lisa’s post. It’s really good. I can’t believe the weather this weekend. I was planning on running but I need to wait and see. I had acupuncture today to help ease some of my muscle pain/tightness in my hamstring and I’m a bit sore. Hoping that it will ease up by Sunday! Have a great weekend Michele!

    Great collections of posts! I loved Lisa’s post, plus I signed up for her virtual race. Now I’ll be off to check out the others (especially Scary Mommy’s :-)).

    I don’t read YA usually, but I loved Gone Girl.

      I can’t wait to start reading Gone Girl. I’ve heard such great things. Scary Mommy’s post is hilarious. Definitely read it if you haven’t already (and it takes like a minute to read).

    I read about a book a week because I can’t function without a book. The types of books I read varies. I do use Good Reads but honestly only because I get all my books free from the publisher and it also gives me a nice page on my blog (click bookshelf and you’ll see it).

    I’m not going to watch the award shows, I’ll just wait for the pretty pictures to show up on the net.

    I may need to read Fire Starter Sessions. Do tell me how it is as you get into it – will you? I also want to read more ficution this year. Gone Girl is on my list thanks to Shell too!

    This is the first year in ages that I’ve actually seen several of the movies that came out last year — one upside of our empty nest! I need to get back to reading. I think I should be able to get a head start on my book-a-month-goal on my international flights this week.

    I laughed at your husband thinking your having a midlife crisis. Mine definitely thinks I’m going crazy too. :)
    I need to read more books this year too. Just makes life better.
