I just ran my taper run! Woot! Woot! It was 8 miles and I didn't need too many layers. It's not capri weather yet but I can feel it coming. You could stop and take pictures today and your hands didn't freeze. The middle of the week had -16 in the morning on a couple of days so this felt fantastic. Above freezing........feels tropical to me.
I didn't run fast. My treadmill runs are all so good but outside I settle into such an easy pace. I am hoping next weekend when I am doing my half I am inspired by the race day excitement and people around me (if there are any) to pick it up some!
I need to think about my goals. I'm pretty pumped for this race even though it's not the original one I had planned to go to. But getting away is always fun and lord know I love to race.
I was going to have to go into school for the third weekend in a row and do report cards but I stayed quite late two days and I don't have to! Parent conferences next week so more long days but today.....I'm a relaxing woman.
This week in math we used those fun foam shapes to make some multiplication equations. I love third graders as they thought they had died and gone to heaven. Also when grading report cards I found way too many kiddos weren't doing it accurately with 2, 3 and 4 digit numbers so I started a subtraction club (everyone joins). There are 5 levels to it and you have to get 100% to move up. I found some cool bookmarks that have room for 5 dragon stickers that they'll get. I totally sold them on what a great club this is. Again.....I love third graders!
