It’s absurdly cliche to ask, but is time accelerating? The older I get, the more I think so. Take this week, for example. One moment, I lost my car. That was Monday. I blinked. Boom. Now, it’s Friday.
I didn’t even get a chance to tell you about last weekend, which was fun, and I think you’ll be pumped to hear what’s cooking as a result. I drove to Pennsylvania for a day of shooting yoga videos for Runner’s World magazine on Saturday (which means you’ll have some abbreviated and athlete-friendly online classes from me at your fingertips soon), then cheered boyfriend, speed demon, and stolen vehicle conspiracy theorist, Dan, in the VIA Marathon on Sunday. Maybe your car is right where you left it, Rebecca?
The synergy of working with Runner’s World the day before the race was unplanned and ideal, as fortuitous partnerships and projects go. We’d been chatting about the project since the spring, and it couldn’t have come together better in the end. I had a ball on the shoot, merging together my love of yoga, running, and creative content making. Part of me will always be 5 years-old holding up a macaroni necklace saying, “Look, I made this for you.” (I really hope you like the videos when they come out).
The next day, I watched Dan run his first marathon. He finished in 2 hours and 47 minutes, placed 11th, and qualified for the Boston Marathon by 23-minutes. To be fair, this is NOT a normal debut. It’s pretty spectacular by any standard. Yet, it wasn’t a surprising or unrealistic outcome given his running ability and training. Nevertheless, it’s official now, and it was exhilarating to watch.
Here are more photos from the trip (like colorful macaroni necklaces on the Interwebs!).
