woke up extremely heavy-hearted thinking about that boy.  thinking of the harsh reality the high schoolers will face in being supportive and going through the motion of funeral home, etc.  …I think that’s actually a good thing and will be therapeutic.  I was really sad gathering clothes for my son to wear to the wake, thinking about that child’s family and what they must feel like.

i did what i had to do.  i ran.  hard at first and then easy.  my quads were heavy and i remembered why – on Monday morning, i blistered through a focus & fly workout of 12 (i’m pretty sure i did 14) 1:00 repeats of all out running.  i was at 8 and 9 mph on the treadmill.  my quads were cookin’!  I knew it was a successful workout because i had a slight inclination to hurl.  slight.  nausea is my barometer.  yes.  ugly truth.  i don’t visit that part of the barometer too much, but every so often, getting an intense workout gets me there.  it passes quickly, thank goodness.

anywho, i met my son for lunch.  he informed me he wasn’t going back to school today.  i love when God grants me perfect grace at the perfect moment – i looked at my sweet son’s face, razor stubble framing his fair complexion, and those big blue eyes and responded, “Well, I don’t blame you.”  I immediately sensed what he must be feeling…heavy-heartedness…

gotta run to the girls’ school – track pictures – more later.

peace, y’all…
