Run to Remember

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free...


And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me...


{God Bless the USA - Lee Greenwood}

Race number 2 of 2017 is in the books. I ran the Boston Run to Remember 5 miler for the first time on Sunday and it was a great race! 

Mom came to town to cheer me on and it was great to have my numero uno cheerleader there! I also knew a friend from my days at Heath and got to see her and a friend of hers (yay running friends).

The route was a lovely loop of downtown and began and ended in the Seaport District. There was something super amazing about running a race that honors fallen first responders over the holiday weekend. Every police officer I ran past I thanked and it made the run that much more special.  

I ended up running a fantastic race! My net time was 47:45. There were 2632 runners for the five mile race and I finished 732nd. In my age bracket I was 112 out of 430. And out of 1630 female runners I was 340th. I will take it!!

Next up, the BAA 10k in a month!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 22

The Good: 
Figuring out I can use my radiator as a white board/magnet board/math center has been so fun this year! Perfect place to practice fractions on the number line!

The Random:
I love funny and whimsical art. This was super fitting to find Memorial Day Weekend!

The Fun:
Mom and I saw "The Wedding Plan" Sunday afternoon. A sweet and funny film from Israel (with English subtitles). A great story and great for shaking the cobwebs off my Hebrew skills!

When I Grow Up...

There's a million things {we} haven't done...
But just you wait, just you wait...

{Alexander Hamilton -- Hamilton}

The end of the year is fast approaching.

It is amazing that I have a class of almost fourth graders. They grew up before my eyes this year, but there is still an amazingly bright future ahead of them!

For our end of year bulletin board, I asked them to write what they want to be when they grow up and the answers were as different and unique as they are!

Fourth grade may be on the horizon, but there are so many amazing things ahead in their lives!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 21

The Good:
I love the public art here in my little area. Such a good way to engage the community and brighten up some spots!

The Random:
Baby goats!! On a ledge!

The Fun:
I treated myself to a momentum wrap. They're super popular among runners and I of course had to have this quote! So fun to look down during my run and see this willing me on.
