  1. I read those first two books, too. I thought they were ok. Not as great as everyone seemed to think. I think Gone Girl was better than Girl on a Train, & All the Light was good, but not great.

    Nothing terribly exciting going on.

    Congrats on getting some speed back!

  2. Hi Darlene,
    I found my way over here from the Liebster award post of “Running Fifty”. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think you are also the Darlene from the blog Instructional Technology at Albany law School.
    Looks like you have had a great summer, both in your running, and enjoying lots of fun summer activities.
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. Awesome month! Great mileage and well done on the 5K times! A little speed is always a confidence booster! I hope I can get mine back in Fall.
    July sounds like a win for you!
