I took yesterday off, although it was a pretty great day! I received my first stripe on my Brazilian jiu-jitsu white belt. It was quite a surprise honestly.
Things that make me smile today:
1. Taking time away from my work computer–as I’m flying solo in my department until Wednesday, I’ve been working more or less non-stop. I will be taking a break tonight and all day tomorrow. Sure, I’ll put in time Sunday to keep everything where it should be, but a small respite is still a respite.
2. So excited to run the Indianapolis Marathon 5K tomorrow morning! I ran this same race two years ago for my first timed event, so it has a special place in my heart.
3. Even more excited to lace up my skates tomorrow afternoon at an open scrimmage. It’s been a few weeks since I last laced up to do more than just footwork in my garage. I’ve kind-of missed my skates and semi-stinky pads.
4. This play last night during the Saints-Falcons game. The same play that ignited the region after Hurricane Katrina a decade ago. Even sweeter, Steve Gleason was on the sidelines to see it happen.
