I like picking up books I put on hold at the University of Amsterdam’s main library branch because the hold room looks like this:
Somewhere in this scary room, Julian located our copy of Wind in the Willows.
I just read that an 85-year-old dude ran this year’s Toronto Marathon in under 4 hours last Sunday. Seriously. On the same day, I ran the Amsterdam Marathon. I hope I’m still putting out the watts when I’m 85. For now, all I can do is run fast enough so my cheering section, who is always situated at around kilometre 40, doesn’t get bored and go home.
When I ran by this year, I heard this: ‘Why did it take Daddy so long?!’ Alas.
At least the boys had a nice picnic and a good tree to climb while they were so patiently waiting…
