I spent this morning as a quiet, low key morning with the dogs. While they slept I finished reading Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent Trilogy. I first found out about the first book, Divergent, from Stephanie when she mentioned it on her blog this past summer. The first book was great and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a Hunger Games-esque book, although the plot was completely different. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a Divergent movie coming out in the next few years. I didn’t get into the second book as much until the last quarter of the book. Then things got exciting. The third and final book of the trilogy comes out later this month.
After a quiet morning, I decided to get my three mile recovery run done. When I got up this morning my legs and lower back were as sore as they are after a 13 mile training run, which I guess is pretty close to what I did yesterday. I was really hungry, but wanted to get my run done before I ate lunch. I was hungry enough that my hands were shaky, so I ate some fruit snacks right before my run which did the trick. My legs felt really tired during the first mile but then they loosened up some and I spent awhile stretching afterwards.
Recently we moved Scout to Hank’s crate, because she had outgrown her old crate. Her crate was located in our dining room and now that she is in Hank’s crate (which is in the basement) we have taken apart her old crate and put it away. It’s nice to have my dining room back.

Although Scout has adjusted just fine to sleeping in the basement in the new crate, and seems to be enjoying having more space, she also misses her old crate. She keeps on sitting or laying in the dining room where her crate used to be and just staring at me.
|Hey you know that thing that was here that I sleep in…. where is it??|
And then there’s Hank, who hasn’t slept in his crate in a long time. All of a sudden he wants his crate back, and he has taken to sleeping in it during the day when Scout is not occupying it. Dogs are so silly.

Yesterday the dogs helped me root on the Hokies as they played Western Carolina. And by that I mean they slept while I listened to the game on the radio, since the game was only be broadcast on ESPN3 and apparently Dish is not a customer of ESPN3 (I’m just a little bitter…). Luckily the Virginia Tech commentators, Bill and Mike, are awesome and make you feel like you’re watching it. Hokies won 45-3, but despite the score the offense still didn’t sound that strong. Our defense had a pick-six, though, and special teams sounded solid.

Lastly, I read an interesting article yesterday that has everything you ever wanted to know about porta potties. Enjoy!

Have you read any of the Divergent Trilogy books?
What did you do yesterday?
