Sloth Running Team

Eric and I did the Sloth Run 5K back on February 23. Eric ran on a treadmill in North East, Maryland. I walked (slowly) in Louisville, Kentucky. We get there when we get there. Our publicity team tells the story when they tell the story.

2 November 2019

5K walk. Morningside Heights.

Walked in solidarity with Kirk in the Hills to support Accent Pontiac. Accent Pontiac’s mission is “strengthening Pontiac’s youth and community through equitable access to intensive and consistent music making.” My father’s first jobs were as a high school instrumental teacher and band director. The last half of the play list honors him.

It was great to get some exercise, support a friend, support a great cause, and remember my father.

A memory I am thankful for

Memory Nov 1

I remember running my first (and so far only) timed 5K with the support of my son, Sean and my friend and trainer Nicole Kung. Desi Aldorando was there that day as well; she took the photo. Boxster was the artistic director. Remembering, I commit to running at least one more 5K by this time next year.

Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home has provided a gift of the November 2018 Gratitude Every Day calendar. I am using it as an opportuity to revisit photos and post them as they speak to gratitude.
