the best part of my ( ____ ) world

the best part of my RUNNING world…

Race day! It is right around the corner. As a matter of a fact, it’s Sunday! I will lace up with more than 40,000 runners from 49 states and more than 20 countries to run my 10th 1/2 marathon (13.1 miles). All this will go down in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh. I’ve planned. I’ve complete my training. Some of my training runs I nailed. Some of them I bonked, and some were right where they were suppose to be. What’s left? It’s time to get my mental game on and, of course, pick out which sneakers I will wear.

the best part of my READING world…

Poem in Your Pocket Day! My readers and Mrs. H.’s readers gathered the perfect poems, jotted them down on a pocket, and cut out all those pockets! Our school celebrated by passing out 600+ pocket poems! It was a day centered around sharing and celebrating poetry. Smiles and poetry galore were everywhere!

the best part of my ROCKIN’ MOM world…

This girl! Since we are running in her city, her city of Pittsburgh, I’ll be spending some time with Maddie this weekend. Matt and I will be pounding the pavement and sailing across the bridges as Maddie cheers us on for race day. And, of course, we will try to squeeze in a little celebration for the end of her junior year at college.


the best part of my RABBIT world…

Story time! Two of my fur kids, Joy and Buddy, enjoy story time. My little Yoshi, on the other hand, decided to just hang back. There’s always one in the crowd who doesn’t participate.


Joy reading Wally: The Life of a Punny Bunny


Buddy reading snacking on Wally: The Life of a Punny Bunny


Yoshi…just chillaxing

So there you have it!

The best part of my world!

Now I’m wondering, what’s the best part of your world?

  1. Sounds like there are a lot of “bests” in your world right now. YAY! I’m so glad you’re back into a running and writing groove–and so glad you’re taking us along for the ride. 🙂 Good luck this weekend and have fun with Maddie!

  2. I love how you come up with these scaffolds for writing! I’ll be thinking of you on Saturday as I celebrate a birthday with my own family. Poem in a pocket day is a great idea, too. I loved when we did that school wide in April. Not enough emphasis is given to poetry in my opinion. Your post tells us so much about the joy you feel in your life. What a great post.

  3. What fun, Amy! A great slice, and I think kids would enjoy writing a piece like this – especially with photos or audio or video added. I love your bunnies – adorable! Such great choices including time with your daughter in a great city and after a half marathon. So much to celebrate! A happy, energetic post and delightful to read!

  4. Your best part is wonderful! Love all your pictures. Good luck in the race. Have a wonderful time with Maddie.
