When I first started reading, I was irritated at the two narrator format. Normally, I get tied up in one of the stories and I find it jarring to switch to another time and place, but in this book, it worked.
This is one of those books that is hard to put down and when you're not reading it, you find yourself thinking about it. I even read it while I was taking an ice bath after my 18 mile run on Saturday and it was so engrossing that I stayed in the ice water for 2 extra minutes (which is like 30 minutes of normal time!) I really need find/form a book club so I can sit around and talk about great books like this one (and eat tasty food...that's what people do at book clubs, right?)
Also, in other news, Faith has decided that she isn't going to let Mommy brush her hair anymore. I guess she prefers the wild look?

Registration for the 2011 Marine Corps Marathon opens on the 23rd (tomorrow) and I'm hoping to get a bib. I'm assuming registration opens at midnight tonight (but I'm going to check and confirm that) and since it usually fills up really quickly, I"m thinking I should get up and register tonight. The thought of waking up in the middle of the night to register for a race sounds more nuts to me than running 26.2 miles, but I've wanted to run this race for a long time, so I guess it's worth it. :)
The only downside would be that if when I finish my marathon on March 13th, I never want to run that far again! Well, I guess if I'm already registered, then I'll just have to suck it up. :P
Also, I just realized that my marathon on March 13th is on daylight savings, so not only do I have to get up early for the race, I also lose an hour! Woohoo :)
Reading any good books lately? I need to find another good one to read!
edited to add: The MCM registration opens at noon tomorrow, so no getting up in the middle of the night required!
