In other news: Since starting this here challenge, I haven't had as much time to read as usual, so I'm thrilled to be closing in on the end of a Year's Best Fantasy and Horror tome (although I wouldn't be so pleased if I didn't have several more on my shelf, waiting to be read). I think... yes... I *think* I may need more thrills in my life.
Fitness report: 10 minutes warm-up, 30 minutes level 2 "strength" on elliptical, 30 minutes level 3 "weight loss" on elliptical, 10 minutes cool-down. The endorphins were with me after that!
I have a new gym idol, btw. There's a woman I see there every time I go, who looks like she's made of pure, concentrated athleticism. She's usually on the treadmill, running, when I start my workout, and she finishes shortly before me--but she runs the whole time. That's a lot of running, right there. It looks good on her, too.
