Weekly Reads, Vol. 87

Today is a good day! I get to pick up my Iowa Wild ticket package tonight at the team's scrimmage. While I'm still fully in the throes of baseball season (hooray postseason!) and am enjoying football as well, I'm also ready to reignite my relationship with hockey. I still have so much to learn, and I'm looking forward to seeing my hockey family.  (Click here to read more about my first season as a hockey fan.) 

And now for some great posts by others.

I am very guilty of downplaying my own achievements. Small or big, we should celebrate them all. Holly hammers the message home about removing the word "just" from our vocabularies.

Monica is a fountain of good advice for runners. This week, she's back with tips for healthy toenails. She also wrote a hilariously accurate post about the stages of a long run. I remember all of these from when I was doing my half-marathon training two years ago.

Taylor adequately summed up my anger, hurt, and rage over the pit bull ban in Montreal.

I try really hard to live my life with no regrets. Sometimes I look back at decisions I made and wonder if I should have made different ones.  Jana offers a good reminder about how multifaceted the term "regrets" is.

There's still time to sign up for the Great Pumpkin Swap being hosted by Kristin and Becky!!


  1. Thanks for the shout out! I can't wait to start shopping for my partner!!

  2. Love this!!! I'm trying to make blogging happen again and I'm grateful for some direction on good reads!

    I'm thinking 2016-2017 is the year I become a hockey fan, too. Nashville has the Predators who (I think) did pretty well last year! I'm looking forward to catching some games this season.

  3. Thanks for the shout out, Micah :)

  4. Thanks for supporting the swap!

    I've been, for the last several months, trying to remove "just" from my vocabulary. It makes what I'm saying come across as optional or unimportant.
