Hi there and Happy Wednesday.

Things are moving along and my Subaru is being repaired. They said it might even be ready to be picked up before the week is out! In the meantime I’ve rented a car to get to and from work and life carries on.

My new morning ritual. Turn on computer, sip coffee and have a few handfuls of Peanut M&Ms. Clearly not the healthiest choice

I went for a run on Monday night just after sunset and about a mile and a half into the run Mr. SOTSS called. I normally don’t run with my phone for short runs but since it was going to be dark I took it with me just to be safe. I’ve never answered a phone call while running before but I knew I had to answer because Monday was a special day. It marked 2 years to the day that Mr. SOTSS and I had our first date in a Starbucks in Manhattan. I got a side stitch at one point, so I walked a few blocks. But once it subsided I picked it up again.

Yesterday was my first stressful day at the office so after work, since I had to pick up a few items at the store, I randomly grabbed People magazine. I figured that between some playtime with Duncan and perusing a mindless magazine I’d be able to #let-it-go.

Ok now on to the serious stuff.

This morning I ran a few miles in honor of a very special little girl.

IMG_2902If you read this post about my meaningful miles at the NYC Marathon you know the story. Abbie, the daughter of my former High School friend was struck by a car and killed tragically while crossing the street a year ago today. His family continues to keep her memory alive through random acts of kindness. So with Abbie’s favorite color being purple, I decided to bring these Hershey Kisses to the office this morning and place a couple on each of my team’s desks. #RandomActsofKindness4Abbie #never4getAbbieZ

So if you’re reading this today, maybe there’s some way for you to act kindly, randomly, to someone? 

Have a great day!
