I think I have run a total of 2 times in the past two weeks. Things got hectic, then we were in Detroit. We came back and next thing I know I am crazy sick with 101 degree fever. I am on some meds but I am severely tired and coughing up tons of stuff. Together, this does not make for good training. I was planning on doing a 5K before our trip but that will not be happening. Oh well. Looks like just more getting out of shape.

Finished a couple more books: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett which was pretty good. The story of a a terrorist group crashing in on birthday party trying to kidnap the president of Argentina who decides not to attend the party at the last minute. The story is mainly about all the different relationships that form between the different people that are there. It was good for me but not great.

We listened to Away by Amy Bloom to and from Detroit. It is the story of a girl who loses her family and travels to US to find work. Then she hears that her daughter might be alive and it goes through the journey of her trying to make her way to Siberia where she might be. The story becomes basically a collection of other stories of her travels and the people she meets. It was interesting and a decent read.

I am currently reading The Thirteenth Tale which is really good so far. I am thoroughly liking this somewhat mystery novel.
