The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 12

The Good:
Take a look at that Supermoon! The last one of 2019, so gorgeous.

The Random:
Was at CVS earlier this week and noticed they already had graduation goodies out...can't we get through Easter first (:

The Fun:
I woman-ed a water stop for Team Brookline on Saturday for the longest long run - the big one where teams run the first 21ish miles of the course. It was such an amazing run for me last year and I got all nostalgic being on the other side of the water table!

Happy Purim!

Happy Purim!
Today we celebrate good triumphing over evil.
Queen Esther speaking up to King Achashverosh and foiling wicked Haman's plan to destroy the Jews.
We stamp out his name as the Book of Esther is read.
This year, in light of hate around the world, this holiday seems more powerful.
We must continue to rise up against those who try to destroy us, we must not let hate win.

For there is great light and gladness!

NYC Half Marathon

In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of...

There's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York...


{Empire State of Mind -- Jay Z}

Ran my 5th half marathon on Sunday in NYC. 
The race started in Prospect Park, Brooklyn and snaked over the Manhatten Bridge into Manhatten. 
The views were amazing as we ran up FDR Drive, past the United Nations and into midtown. We ran straight up 7th Avenue, through Times Square and into Central Park. 

What a route!

In truth, Sunday's race was not my race. I worked hard to keep moving and refused to give up. I am beyond proud that I was so determined to make it to Central Park and get that medal. I didn't stop moving until I saw my mom at mile 11.5 where I had a moment before pushing on to the end.

Seeing that finish and getting my medal made the previous miles worth it. A nice added bonus was my cousin Yona came to meet me at the finish too!

Race number 2 for 2019 is in the books. Let's see what's next!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 11

The Good:
Another amazing book. The Paris Architect is about an architect in Paris during the German occupation who begins to realize how far he will go to save others after a big change of heart. While it was fiction, I learned a ton about what life was like in Paris during the occupation. Highly recommend.

The Random:
A quick stop at Fishes Eddy in the city over the weekend. Love the dueling shot glass set.

The Fun:
One of my favorite math activities all year: Array City - art and multiplication!
