I needed a bag in which to carry my cookies and brownies to the box this morning and it needed to be fairly big in order to accommodate the containers. I was scrabbling around in the dark recesses of my recycle bag cupboard and came out with this one. It was all folded up but how surprised I was that I still had it. (I’m not normally a hoarder.) It is the gear bag from, obviously, the 2006 Boston Marathon. This was the year that David and I ran it, when I was young(er) and able to run 26.2 miles all in one go. Fun times were had. I wonder how many other people still have their gear bags from past marathons?

“Obama denies 2013 was his worst year”  Does that mean 2014, 2015, 2016 are potentially going to be worse? Just wondering.

Going to CrossFit Mt Lebanon‘s Christmas party this evening. Should be fun. Not sure that I will recognize too many people in proper clothes. Maybe we should all have name tags.                     Joanna
