@nuss - It’s so good to see your post! I love all your posts and often wonder where you get the energy from. Love it! It’s the best thing we can do for our mind and body! 10k’s and orange belt already? Whoa. You are on a roll!!. We should all plan a virtual race together soon! Gauri is the best! I did do the 75 hard challenge last year with a friend to get in half marathon shape. We did it! The challenge was hard though and didn’t have built in flex days. I burned out by the end of it. I love how Gauri is making it flexible for it to work for everyone! Focusing on staying positive through the challenge and having some grace days for everyone is so important. I love your neighbor! Traveling light is a phrase I’m going to borrow. The perfect kind of india trips. I can’t wait for the country to open up. Isn’t it good to call whenever just to say hello! Idyllic! Kids tend to remember these things and talk about it years later! I was just talking about this the other day. How did you pick the language? DH and DD are very good at picking up new languages but I don’t have that skill. Im really wanting to try though. I admire anyone who take the time to work with foster teens. Im sure it’s fulfilling. How many hours do you put into it? How do you efficiently manage your full time job, kids and volunteering? Do share tips. Im eager to learn. The effectiveness of running! It’s like turning the pressure release valve! I believe this is often referred to as the runners high leaking into our daily lives. Good luck for the second half of the year! I need help saying focused as well. Maybe I’ll start a thread at the end of the year to keep the momentum from the year going!
