Three-Day Weekend at the End of the Tunnel
I've been spending way too much time here this spring ...
... so a three-day weekend with no plans, nowhere to go, nothing to do, was pure heaven. I took my body outside and moved it around in the fresh air, just like it wants to do, far from the dual computer monitors and relentless deadlines and flashing conference call reminders.
On Saturday I took my roller skis here:
And on Sunday I took my bike here:
And today I took my running shoes here.
And then, because I'm nothing if not an optimist, I signed up for the American Birkebeiner. I believe in magic, and I believe that somehow I will find enough hours in the weeks and months between now and February 2016 to get to the starting line on Birkie Day well-trained and well-prepared, with an eager and joyful heart, saying, "I can't wait to see what's going to happen today!"
