March 10, 2019, Sunday afternoon -- Reading Alex Hutchinson

At a cafe in the Mission District
She is reading Endure: Mind, Body and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance, by Alex Hutchinson. She is a distance runner and while she's down with an injury, she's working on her mental game for endurance running. She ran the 10k and 5k in college.

Other running books she's read are Good to Go: What the Athlete in All of Us can Learn from the Strange Science of Recovery, by Christie Aschwanden, and Let Your Mind Run: A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory, by Deena Kastor -- who has the American record in the marathon -- and Michelle Hamilton.

She doesn't have a favorite book or author, but she does really like Haruki Murakami.
