Running and Biking

Yesterday (Saturday) it was a perfect day to be outside. Today, when I woke up it was snowing. This makes me happy that I got outside a lot yesterday.

Yesterday Barb and I went for a run. We did 3.4 miles and then walked the last 0.6. We did our run to Lincoln Elementary and back.



It was pretty fabulous out. I forgot to take a picture of the tracks we ran over on our run, so I snagged a picture of Lake Ruth over by Simpkins Hall.



I think I have other shots of the Lake. I’ll have to take some more from this angle at different times of the year.

Barb and I agreed to do the Galesburg Half-Marathon on June 1, so I’ll have to sign up for that ASAP. It should be fun. I’m excited and that means more training and upping my milage. I also hope that means better running weather than the snow today. We’re headed out tomorrow morning and it’s supposed to warm up this week. (Fingers crossed.)

Later in the day I biked with Jack to the bowling alley and dropped him off. Erin met me there and we went on our first bike ride of the season. Great day for a ride. It was a bit windy, but I didn’t care. I really love to bike. We went Northeast of town, past Veterans Park. We haven’t been that way before, but it was much better than Southwest and all the chip seal. On my way home I did manage to find some tracks to photograph:)


I read two books this week. I finished “Divergent” by Veronica Roth. It was fun. I’m going to read it with my “Reading Instruction in the Content Area” class that starts on Tuesday. We’re also going to watch the movie, which should be a fun field trip. I’m also teaching “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon. I really enjoyed the book and found it hauntingly beautiful. I can’t wait to teach it.
