icy driveway, reading at the gym
Sunday I decided to change up my swimming. When I sprained my ankle last year I did a lot of swimming and went to the Edge in Burlington a lot. It's fun to use a different pool at a different time of day. When I go there I can follow the swim with a hot tub time with a good book. Heaven! Then a visit to Jameson and Jaxon. A very successful change!
As the week has gone on.......more treadmill. I am really hoping to get out this weekend. In fact I WILL get out this weekend!
We did some fun science experiments at school this week.........so not about running but it's hard to write about running on the treadmill too much! Boring! So here are my kids working ever so hard......no faces so I feel fine putting these on here!
How many drops of water do you think a penny can hold? You might be surprised!
One last thing but not a small thing at all. Today I lost a very dear friend to cancer. She fought the hard fight but unfortunately didn't win it. Sharon was a colleague and a friend. She was a quiet person but willing to try most things. I did a fair amount of traveling with Sharon. She was also willing to join me in a few races even though she didn't really like racing. She was always ready to go on a bike ride and other fun adventures. Sharon was the least judgmental person I know. The world has lost a very special woman.
Racing with me and some of my other favorite people.

Easily my favorite shot - in a tacky t shirt shot.

Life brings unexpected tragedies. Enjoy each and every day. Trite but true.
