ALA has a nice tradition of offering a yoga class at the Midwinter Conference and a 5K Fun Run & Walk at Annual. These events really are fun. It’s a great way to experience scenic parts of the city. And it adds a spirit of adventure to your conference experience. The upcoming Think Fit 5K Fun Run & Walk will be held on Sunday, June 30, at 7:00am. Participants meet at the McCormick Place Convention Center and run along the edge of Lake Michigan. So cool!
I love/hate to run. In my mind, I imagine myself with a strong stride, tanned legs, and maybe a hot pink racerback top. In reality, I’m middle-aged and, um … not a candidate for hot pink racerbacks. So I love it when I find a book that gives me some inspiration to knock out 3.1 miles. Here are some great YA novels that do the trick.
