I read this quote in a book by Anna Quindlen, one of my favorite authors, and found it perfect. I added it to a picture from my bike ride in Ogunquit/York.
Wednesday I expected to be picking Em up at the airport in Albany. But she got a voucher to come into Burlington instead, although much later. A win for all of us. It was closer to pick us up. She has a free flight in the future. I got a ride and a run in that I thought wouldn't happen on a very pleasant day.
Emily came in to talk to my class about her 100. They had such good questions and I learned some new things about the race too. One guessed it took her two weeks to do it. They wondered what she ate and where she slept. I was amazed no one asked about the bathrooms or lack there of. It is hard for them to comprehend someone running 100 miles. It is hard for me to comprehend someone running 100 miles. I loved having her there and having my students meet her.
I have to say although I don't want to jinx it that I am having such a good year at school. Please, please no one move in to change that. I have a great group of kids. I have two good math groups. What a difference it makes to have even keeled students.
There's not a lot of color change yet. I took this one today when I was running. Again, I wasn't sure if I could run or bike and I managed to do both in perfect temps.
I went to my strength class again this week. It was complicated to get there because I was letting Em use my car but I worked it out. My first ride forgot me but I still got there. I am enjoying it a ton. When I did the exercises myself on Tuesday I definitely did something wrong because my shoulder hurt the next few days.
Today, Sunday, the whole family summited Mt. Abe. I am exhausted. My children tell me we will be going up Mt. Mansfield tomorrow. I am not a hiker. I am tired. I am dead. Things ache. We shall see.
