I read this article. And while some of it was a little “out there,” I really liked the encouragement to do the things that are important to you and are life-giving early in the day, because you may run out of energy to invest in these things at the end of the day (say, after a full day’s work).
So, here I am on this Monday morning. Writing. Because this is good for my soul. And I really like it.
- I officially registered for the marathon. I can’t decide if this is the best decision I’ve made this year or the worst. Time will tell. For now, training has been great and challenging, and I’m super excited! I’ve been wanting to run the Twin Cities Marathon ever since moving here and spectating the last few years. It’s a gorgeous course – SO CLOSE, and it seems like a fun atmosphere with fans. Also, the race is exactly 20 days before my 30th birthday, so I thought this would be a great way to say adios to my twenties. Eeek!
- Speaking of 30th birthdays – the husband hits the big 3-0 in less than two weeks. I’ve finally honed in on some celebration and gift ideas and have started plotting I’m pumped.
- Immensely excited to be spending the holiday weekend with our dear friend Warren, who lives overseas, but is back in the states for a few weeks this summer. Always a fun time of camping, kayaking, hiking, campfiring, and catching up.
- Work commute update: I endure the “cat call” regularly on my way to work. Perhaps a post devoted entirely to this mucky topic forthcoming. However, last week, my shoes received their own whistle and yell from a gentleman across the street. (You already know about my commuting attire: business casual with a splash of neon running shoes.) It was hilarious. And weird.
- It’s a gorgeous morning. A good day for a quick little walk to work.
Happy Monday to you!
