Travis Macy’s Audible Book on the Treadmill


Asa is at a birthday party at a bouncy house place, Ruby is slowly moving all the cans out of the pantry, Eliot’s making a stir fry, and I’m sitting here in the kitchen in the clothes I ran in many hours ago.   Seems like a good time to blog.

So have you all heard of this book Travis Macy wrote?

He was interviewed about it on and on  So as a podcast zealot, I’ve heard a lot about it in the last few days.  And because I have big treadmill miles to get done tonight, I decided to get a subscription to Audible to listen to it.  Hopefully, I won’t need all 7 hours and 28 minutes…  I figure even if there are no inspirational epiphanies, it’ll take my mind off the slug-like quality of my uphill miles. (And really, that’s all I’m looking for in literature these days.)

What I’ve listened to so far made me think about getting in touch with Travis and seeing if he might be available to come to the Trail Camp for RWB this year.  We’ll see.  First, slug-like uphill miles.   🙂

      Cool! I haven’t gotten that far yet. I have 20 miles on the schedule tomorrow, so I should hear it very soon. 🙂
