I once placed 4th in an 800m race – I was 12

When I was in grade 6 I went to a track and field meet. My school district had them every year and every kid in grade 4-8 had to participate, and the top 3 for each sport went to the district meet.

Cycling Gear

It has been about a month since I started riding my bike to work. It has been longer but there was a trip in the middle and some colds and work related items, so I am going with it’s been a month since I posted about riding to work.

On average I ride to work three times a week, as well as on weekends to run errands or visit people or the gym.

Week 1 of Mins Game

Wednesday 06/01 – A handful of travel containers (counting as 1)

Thursday 06/02 – 1 notebook and 1 book (2)

Friday 06/03 – 3 pairs of shoes (3)

Saturday 06/04 – Lost count… I bought bins up from storage and filled two for donate and one of things to sell and still felt like I had too much stuff.

Sunday 06/05 – Nothing specific – thought about my DVDs

I have already broken down and bough a travel mug that does not have a handle, nor does it leak if it is upside down, and right away donated the million that I had. I needed this to taking my coffee to work when I ride my bike. I can put it in my side basket with my bag and not worry about coffee being everywhere.
