Did you know that kids as young as 8 years old have run the marathon in the past? How crazy is that? And this year an 84 year old woman endeavored to be the oldest female ever to complete the course. (She totally rocked it, by the way.)
How are people so awesome?
Tomorrow, I'm heading to Tyler State Park in PA to run a 10K. I am proud to say that this event has raised over $90,000 in support of Autism Cares, a non-profit that provides free events for people on the autistic spectrum and is in the process of building an Autism Resources Center in Bucks County, PA.
I'm thinking I might have to buy this book by Julia Rothman. I know I live in an apartment. in Brooklyn. But I have a romantic notion about living on a farm and making everything for myself. You never know, maybe it'll happen someday. For now, I'll just look. I especially love the illustrations and guidelines on how to color wool with plant-based dyes.
