Sunday I did a triple - sort of.
Part 1I got up early to get a five mile run in. It was sunny and the temperature was great. I got home, did my stretches and got ready for part 2.
Part 2I joined one of my students and his family for a walk for Juvenile Diabetes Research. My student was diagnosed just a few months ago. His life has changed considerably and he is handling it like a champ. When he first knew of this walk he asked me if I would walk it with him. I was pleased and honored to join him for the event. It was an easy walk three times around a trail. I walked with him some, his father and younger brother for quite a bit of it and a family friend. One of the girls from my class who ran the Girls on the Run Race yesterday was there. Yesterday she ran 3 miles, today she was back for more! (All of the girls were still very excited today. One girl who always shares about all the tv she has watched shared about the race. Yeah! The favorite part for all of them - the huge puddle at the finish line. Seriously.)
Part 3When I first got home I took a nap - too many days of getting up early. I was out for about an hour. I woke up greatly refreshed and got a few things done. Then I headed out on my new bike! Yeah that's what I bought - big surprise - not! I also rode it yesterday and I love it! It is a pretty low end "hybrid" type bike. It is so much lighter than the bike I had. The shifting is completely different and of course way skinnier tires. It worked just fine on the dirt roads. I found myself being the most careful on the downhills on the pavement. It goes a bit fast for me on those. I rode the same rides I rode a few weeks ago and was much faster and more efficient. I loved it! I rode with a big smile on my face!
Here it is!
