Congrats on the good evaluation! I hope big things are in store for you!!!
And I won't twist off & go on a rant about the whole school issue thing except this...welcome to socialism. It's all about the haves providing for the have nots. I agree with you 100% on everything you said cause its true! Honestly if I still had a kiddo in school I would probably homeschool. Don't like what they teach anyways. I know there are a lot of teachers around here & bless their hearts most of 'em do the best they can. I have teachers in my family & know what they have to go thru in a profession they love. I could never do what they do. So hats off to the great teachers out there. You know who you are.
On the whole running issue...that would suck if you had to give it up...but you sure don't want to damage your poor tootsies anymore than they may already be, if there is a problem. If you cant run maybe you could help the marathons in other ways? Just a thought. Will be keeping my fingers crossed all goes well.
