So many times as an adult I have longed for the joy I felt during childhood. At times I find life as an adult to be a challenge as my own fears collect and hinder over time like pine straw in a skate brake!
How to recapture the giddy hysteria of childhood antics without the aid of mood-altering pharmaceuticals?! Should I go back to Bournemouth and find a white/blonde-haired kid with which to play hide and seek in the bleached stucco stair wells of the grand houses near the Winter Gardens? One of my sisters might oblige these days but they'd secretly think I was just a sad remnant of a previously well-adjusted person. I could say hang it all and move to the beach...any beach...and hope to recapture the magic of simply standing on the sand, enthralled for hours by the sun-sparkles on the water surface.
Of course you can always donate money to the Red Cross and countless other organizations (please do), which you can find listed alongside many tornado outbreak news articles. But it's a little harder to find where to actually show up or who to call to register for hands-on help in Alabama, probably partially because thousands of volunteers showing up out of the blue might add to the problem. However, there are some smaller organizations advertising for volunteer help needed. I know other states were hit too, including the state where I live, but I believe it's a Cat-in-the-Hat situation in Alabama (...And this mess is so big and so deep and so tall, we cannot pick it up, there is no way at all). I think the ratio of hands to rubble is far worse than in Georgia.
This is my second attempt to bring some attention to this notable ride. While looking for links the first time around I revisited the awful circumstances surrounding Mr. Serrano's death, and got so upset I had to quit and go do something else. But who am I to give up and run away? For the three involved in this accident, it's the least I can do to highlight this ride.

Congrats to all who are spending plenty of time exercising! Kudos if you do that AND spend lots of time thinking about this while exercising or not. Thinking about exercising is part of actually going to exercise. And any mind game that gets me out exercising is a mind game I like. Also, thinking about scientific and mathematical issues keeps brains exercised along with the rest of the body. If you feel elevation data is irrelevant to your training, you won't want to waste your time reading this article. If reviewing your data informs you and inspires you, read on to see if you agree.

From bullying target to Olympic silver medalist is not too bad. But it is usually harder than it looks. And once in a while someone shares their struggles with the rest of us. Speed Skater Trevor Marsicano is going back to his old school and is visiting other schools to talk to kids about his experiences with bullying as a youngster.
