#CBR10Bingo: Not My Wheelhouse (the book is a) non-fiction and b) about running – neither of these things are in my usual wheelhouse)
I was at a bit of a loss as to which genre or book to choose for the “Not My Wheelhouse” square on the CBR10 Bingo card, because while I primarily read romance, paranormal fantasy and YA (especially at the moment), I do try to branch out into other fiction genres every so often, and while I don’t read them as often any more, I wouldn’t consider science fiction or mystery or general historical and/or contemporary fiction outside my “wheelhouse”. I could go for horror, but that would have meant reading an actual horror novel. I keep putting off Locke and Key, vol 5 because those books freak me out a little and I’m assuming Joe Hill has something really bad planned for the conclusion of the series.
So I settled on non-fiction. I heard about this book several years ago and added it to my TBR list. I’d completely forgotten about it until I started looking through my unread books and the non-fiction books on my TBR list on Goodreads. I am fascinated by people who run. A close friend of mine, whose youngest daughter is about three months older than my little boy, recently ran her first half marathon since giving birth and set a new personal record for time. I’ve known her since we were both 15 and when she told me a few years ago that she’d started long distance running, I thought she was kidding. Before she had to have her hip replaced, my mother-in-law also used to run long distance races. Before they had children, my sister and brother-in-law used to run together, for fun (I honestly don’t know if they do anymore, going to guess it’s difficult for them to find the time with two very rambunctious little girls). It was completely alien to me why anyone would do this, yet so many people not only do it regularly, but feel better because of it.
