The NY marathon is today, and the runners will, once again, pass right by my window. We plan to make breakfast and lean out and cheer them on. My friend Andrea is running, but with the thousands of entrants it is doubtful that I will be able to pick her out. I cant even imagine running 26 miles! After 4, my knees are are dying. My heart is fine, and breathing is fine, but my legs were just not made for land exertions.

Back in the water tomorrow, for me.

yackity yack.

pulling myself along a rope, stomach down on a wheely square was the best part of PE. I think this was 2nd grade. We did stations: rope climb, pulling, chin ups, 4 square.

Running sucked. In fact, we used to have to run a mile in grade school 3 times a week. We were told it was 9 circles around the field. In fifth grade, after years of torture, the PE instructor (Mrs. Stovall...I cant believe I remember that!) said that they had mis-measured and it was only 5 1/2. I was so bitter. Keep in mind, Idaho air is very thin.
