Where I've Been

Autumn has proven to be a busy time of year this go-around. I do think however, that when one is too busy adventuring to find time for blogging, it can only be considered a good thing. And that, my friends, is essentially the state of things.

Following is a list of what has been keeping me busy in the past several weeks. They all really deserve blog reports of their own, but said reports may or may not materialize. Depends how much adventuring is in the near future, I suppose.

1. Long trail runs through Desolation Wilderness with Jamie

2. The Long Beach Marathon

3. The Girls on the Run 5K, Halloween edition

4. A long weekend of outdoor bliss in Zion National Park

5. A 5-day school field trip to the Marin Headlands Institute

Ginny Weasley graces the
GotR 5k. My friends thought I was a total nerd, but I got tons of recognition and compliments on the costume from all the kids in the race. Learned this day: Running fast in a pencil skirt is not easy.

The beginning of
The Narrows, ZNP. This weekend included a day spent exploring a magnificent slot canyon, and a day running through paradise with good friends. Life doesn't get much better.

As a teacher, you know that when your classroom looks like this, you're doing something right.


  1. Amazing autumn so far. Hope the rest is a great. It is fun to look back. Hope you will get to write about all those wonderful places.

  2. If running fast in a pencil skirt were easy, I'd never have caught a date. ;)

  3. Ewa- Thanks, I hope I get to write about them, too!

    Steve - LOL! :)

  4. As usual, the travels you do...and the fun you're having:)

  5. Olga - Oh yeah, well, I make it look all glamorous, don't I?

  6. Love the photo of all the students line up along the cliff above the sea. Kinda looks like home schkoolin!

  7. Pam - Well then, as a homeschool teacher, you are doing something right! ;) That's the advantage - the world is your classroom!

  8. Love, love, love you as Ginny Weasley. You should have worn that number in the long beach marathon!!
