Quiet morning relaxing with my tea & tagged book because last night Mr H and I went to see the horseshoe crabs on the Delaware Bay during the full moon. It was sooooo cool! But also way past my bedtime.

Shaaaannnn Woah! Super cool! 3d

I was so happy to see this book win a Pulitzer. Eliza Griswold tells a compelling story about the ways fracking has affected an entire community, for better or worse. My family lives in Washington County, PA and this book hit close to home for me.

Time to get serious about my blister issues. Training for a 50k and suddenly they‘re cropping up all over my feet. Yikes!

JamieArc Have you tried toe socks? I haven‘t used them for running, but on my very long walks (that time I walked 500+ miles), they were a big help (along with the glide stick). Good luck! 4mo
Hoopiefoot Thanks, @eanderson, @Amandajoy, @CouronneDhiver, @JamieArc! I‘ve been switching between injinji toe socks and smartwool socks but clearly I need to give something else a try. 4mo
eanderson I use feetures or brooks. Those seem to work for me. Have you been refitted for shoes? Maybe it‘s the shoes? I hate blisters and totally get it! 4mo
Hoopiefoot @eanderson Happy to report that I tried some of the techniques in this book today and had a blister free run! 4mo
eanderson Oh Yayy!!! That‘s awesome!!! What were they? I‘m glad it worked. Especially with training it‘s not easy to have an obstacle making things difficult. 4mo
