ON VACATION, MONDAYS SHOULD BE LAZY, and NOT get you down like rainy days do, as the song by the Carpenters tells us. It’s the first real non-weekend day of a holiday. The entire week of fun lies ahead, so anxiety about getting back to the daily grind should be at it’s lowest, especially if you are true to the spirit of vacation and not checking devices for grind-related mail or messages. If you wish to get lost in a great book and read it from start to finish during your break, Monday is a great day to start.
Perhaps you planned ahead and picked out a book specifically for this time. If not, find one left by a previous guest in the summer place you are staying, order one online that can be delivered instantly and read on a device, or download an audible book that you can play while contemplating the sunrise or sunset, hiking, or another activity. If you have never ‘listened’ to a book give it a try. Or perhaps there's a neighborhood book exchange or free library nearby in which to acquire one.
Choose from new running books, classic running books, or an entire world of non-running books (see links to lists below); enjoy reading on the beach, in a cabin, or on your own sofa, patio, or porch.

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
