Total Distance

pm--6.25 Green Valley Loop. Nice chill in the air. I felt like I got into a nice flow. The pace was a little slower than I thought it was, but I always have a steady rise in pace as the run progresses. That's good. RHR--52. 

Yesterday, I finished another book—Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History by Laurel Thatcher-Ulrich. It was recommended by one of my most masculine friends. The author works wonders with seemingly small stories. This book is framed around three historical women and their questions about a woman’s place in the world. Side note, the author is a Mormon Feminist.

I've actually thought about reading this book. Would you recommend it

From Alli Peterson on Wed, Dec 13, 2017 at 19:08:36 from

Actually, quite frankly, I'll take any book recommendations at this point. I've read through my book shelf

From Vis on Wed, Dec 13, 2017 at 21:23:07 from

I liked the book. It's nonfiction and bit more academic than expected but interesting. PVHS library has it. Tell your mom to check it out for you for Christmas. :)

Two books I recommend to almost everyone are Boys in the Boat and Ender's Game. If you haven't read either of those, check them out.
