My Week in Instagram (Week #36)

This week has flown by in a blur of busyness--teaching my exchange students, teaching my music students, working on stuff, going to the gym, a prom, and sometimes even sleeping. And to cap it all off, a 5K this morning.

patio table inexplicably shattered.

I helped Dad clean up the mess.

The run started and finished in a cemetery.

Ready to run!

I was feeling optimistic, and actually ran the first couple

Big Jim Hall is a local radio personality. He has a fabulous

I finished the race.

Tired but triumphant runner, after setting a new personal
best time (and then promptly throwing up in a garbage can).
