Today was the last day of classes at the high school I teach at. As a grade 12 teacher, I am always a little sad to see my students graduate. This year I had a great bunch of grade 12 Biology students, so I played them one of my favorite songs to say my goodbye to them and to wish them all well as they head off into the crazy world.
It's a beautiful song, and I always play it when I need some motivation to go out and try something new. It speaks to me particularly with my running, especially before races when I am wondering, why the heck did I sign up for this?!!
On another note, Hubs and I went to a wedding this weekend. Here is a picture of Hubs and I all cleaned up.
Hubs and I had a great time. Almost too great of a time, in fact. I was worried I would be a little shall we say "dehydrated" for my 24km trail run Sunday morning. The run went well except for the fact I got huge red hives on my legs. I thought it was maybe poison ivy, but it turns out it was a reaction between the bug spray and sunblock lotion. Thankfully, most of it went away after some Epsom salt therapy and antihistamines. Yikes!
