Gully long run. Sun is coming up early enough so that I can get a decent trail run in and still make it to work (almost) on time. Makes the whole day go a lot better when I can get in a decent morning run without getting up at 4 AM.

Especially good today since I'm teaching the Holocaust and that always bums me out. 

PM: Five miles of ellipticaling .

You should just watch We Bought A Zoo again instead.

Just wondering if your kids read "Night"? Is that a high school approved book?

"Almost" in time for work!! :)

Agreed, both as to the morning runs and the Holocaust being a heavy topic, for any educator, the great ones included. Do your thing, talk to 'em straight.
