I am grateful for having a smart phone. On my drive home I reflected on the number of personal phone calls, emails and texts I was able to respond to in such a short period of time. I am very thankful for this ability but in many ways miss simpler times of childhood/the early 90’s.
Since I have been having knee pain I haven’t been going to ultimate frisbee practice. Go Granite State Grass Stains! Go, go, yay!
Today I gave it a go. Running straight forward…fine. Cutting, starting and stopping are questionable. It was nice to see everyone! Didn’t enjoy the cloudy, windy 45 degree weather though!
I am grateful for our trip to Home Depot today. Due to having gift cards we felt good about more expensive/longer lasting fencing. Putting them up next weekend!
I am grateful for medical professionals. Most recently Physical Therapists. I recently had some knee pain and went to PT last week. Just used a foam roller and massage on my IT band (which hurt like hell) but was able to trot 2 miles with no pain (but questionable friction in knee). Let’s go me!!
I am grateful to find clean underwear in my dresser drawer…especially the ones that fit well, not all stretched…or thongs, ew. Down to the last one today! Time to do laundry!!
Today I picked up my friend Jaime at Back Bay Station, on Marathon Monday…but not until 7pm…thank goodness.
It was a test of feeling prepared but also the ability to let go of things out of my control. Mike came with for extra support and navigation.
Getting into the city was fine…and the police began removing loser road barricades as we were pulling up to back bay station!
The frustration I did have was there wasn’t a place to pull over to have Jaime jump in the car! It took me over 15 minutes just to circle the block due to pedestrians and traffic.
Then off to Cambridge Brewing Company for good food/beer and great company.
