Since it is Thursday, I’m linking up today with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud Thursday.
Here’s what I’m thinking about today:
I was lucky to have gone to the city for my 4th time this summer on Tuesday.
Unfortunately I was only there for 5 hours and my only reason was to see my dear Russian friend, Anna.
She was my host when I first visited Russia 14 years ago.
We have stayed in touch and she visits as often as she can. The last time was 3 years ago. This time she flew to the US for a wedding in Maine and decided to stop in NYC on her way back so I could see her.
So I took the bus down and we spent the day together. It was wonderful.
I should mention that Anna is very much into fashion. Until this visit, I have only seen her in nice clothes and nice shoes. (In fact one year, she got blisters from walking around NYC in those shoes so she had to borrow my sneakers. She made me crop them out of every photo.)
In 2012, when she came to visit, she watched me in a race. Everyone got an medal and she seemed intrigued.
Now 4 years later, she tells me that she is a runner!!!!!!!!!! I was shocked!!
And she ran 2 days in a row in Central Park!! I feel like a proud parent!!!
She even mentioned that she wants to run a race and get a medal. Maybe even come back to the US and run one with me…
Yup, I have a job. I’ve only worked 2 days so I can’t say much about it. I do feel like I am in a college class where I need to work hard to learn the material and then perform at a certain level. Let’s hope my “old” brain can absorb all this new stuff.
A lot of that. Coming up is a 5k, a half marathon, 2 5ks, a half marathon…
There’s pumpkin everything out but today the heat index was 90 degrees!?
I am have love-hate relationship with Fall. I love the pretty colors of the leaves and running in the cooler temps.
But it means the days are shorter and winter will be arriving. I HATE WINTER!!
Happy Running! What are you thinking about today? Have you ever inspired someone to start running? Do you like Fall?
