What else can you do?

I have been thinking of this for ages – how can I do something for the world, for humanity, for my family – something that matters? And then I just realized, there is one easy-to-do thing: if I learn a lot, I show a good example for my children, that makes them a better people and that may help the world a little bit.

Running and riding the bike

It’s only Thursday, though, I know, I know, but I am so bloody satisfied with this week that I feel like I am in heaven.

As I mentioned earlier, last week I started running again and took my bike to a bike service – and this Wednesday I was ready to wake up early and go for a run. And this time I was able to run 6.4 kilometres, only walked for a while (although my training plan suggested it more frequently through the earphones), and had that very happy feeling after it.

And in the evening my bike was ready, so I went for a ride. Only for 20 minutes or something like that, but here in the twelveth district, with hills and slopes everywhere it was a challenge!
