In the days leading up to today I have found myself talking with others about the question “Where were you on September 11, 2001?” It seems like a question that our children will be assigned to ask their parents in their history classes. It is hard to believe that 10 years have passed since that tragic day.
Looking back and analyzing my reactions at that specific point-in-time, I realize how young I was. I was 12 years old, in my 7th grade drama class. It was hard for me to understand what terrorism truly was because that is not something we were taught about in school. I didn’t understand why such a horrible thing happened to innocent people, and why we couldn’t do something to fix it.
The memorial at ground zero is a beautiful tribute to those who were lost, and I just wanted to recognize this significant day before going on with my daily ramblings.
On a Lighter Subject
I ran without knee pain today!
Today’s run was actually really refreshing. I didn’t plan how far I was going, I didn’t bring my watch, I just ran until I was too thirsty to go on. It probably ended up being between 4 and 5 miles, which I am ok with that ;). Because I was so thirsty, I stopped in the Indiana State Museum and gulped down water at the drinking fountain. For some reason, my thirst just couldn’t be quenched.
Today’s Body Pump class had a lot of Pink songs. Apparently, Pink songs are notorious for being the toughies in Body Pump classes. I upped my weights today because I am still trying to figure out where I should be, and my arms were on FIRE at the end of each track! I am seriously loving the class though…too bad it’s only a 14 day free trial 🙁
I biked home…in the rain! The raindrops were thick and fat and I tried to race home before it got too heavy. The rain won the race.
I was ready for a light lunch since I had a snack before Body Pump. I made a salad veeeery similar to last night’s with garlic stuffed olives on the side. I absolutely adore giant olives, but Brian hates them….I really don’t understand that, but I guess that just means more for me 😉
Having this lazy Sunday to take my time to get things done and just hang out has been really nice.
Just a thought: Where were you 10 years ago today?
