Just keep running...

Luke ran 5.5 miles from school to his chemo appointment on Thursday and 3.7 miles home from school Wednesday. His times are dropping fast! I put running clothes on a couple of times this week. That counts for something, right? I'm amazed by him and inspired by him, but I'm just so dang lazy lately. 

It broke my heart when he arrived at clinic after his run and said, "Isn't it kind of disappointing that I'm feeling so well and then I'm just going to get the wind knocked out of my sails?" He was on board with starting the new cycle though. Sure enough, the wind was indeed knocked out of his sails that evening. He slept in yesterday and went to school late, but had a pretty decent day overall. He said he probably could have gone running yesterday afternoon, but figured his body could use some rest. (I agree!) He's working at the Mario Kart tournament at Abt right now. 

Thank you to those who reached out with advice for Greece. I think we're leaning toward Crete and maybe one other spot for our extra week. 

Thank you all again for everything!
