Rental car, audio books, PlaySpan & other updates

Your guide to everything under the moon, the Amber Moon, 2/4/24.

Blueberry, my car, recently had a little boo-boo and got a little body work done, during which I had the “luxury” of a modern rental car (as opposed to my 2010 low tech car). My favorite thing about this rental was that I got my Audible account linked to the in-car system and was able to listen to a book. In the 9ish days I had the rental, I got thru most of 1 book – The Cyclist’s Training Bible: The World’s Most Comprehensive Training Guide.

And then I got Blueberry back. I can hook into the stereo system with an AUX cable, but I have to take the phone case off to get the cable to sit correctly. It was a pain.

I start looking at the case and WHY it doesn’t work.

I have an impact driver, drill bits, and I know how to use them.

I enlarge the AUX hole. A lot. And now it works! I can keep the case on AND listen to books.

It’s a 35-40 min drive each way to the Austin Studio. While I now plug the phone in vs the automatic wi-fi connecting in the rental, it’s a small step that I don’t mind, and I get to listen to books. I’m already on to next: 80/20 Triathlon: Discover the Breakthrough Elite-Training Formula for Ultimate Fitness and Performance at All Levels.

And now I’ll be driving a little more as track season starts up. More books. YAY.

Getting your PlaySpan to equal your LifeSpan

One of my continuing education sessions from 2022 was presented by DotFit. Nutrition, research based, that is designed to help you increase how long you are active – your “playspan”, and increase it to where it is close to your lifespan. We all want that, right? The one thing that impressed me during the presentation was their multivitamin. It’s updated with new research on keeping the mind healthy, active, attentive.

Especially their over 50 one. I’ve got my mom starting on it. Other family have been on it. We’ve got some dementia in the family, so I’m doing what I can to minimize our risk. With research.

If you’re looking for a new multivitamin, take a look at this one. Read their research. See what you think.
