It reminded me that one of the reasons many of us (including me) run is because we can. And we'll keep running, until like the man I met today, we are forced to stop. A few years ago, when I lived in a different town, my typical post-work running route would take me past a house where I would often see a man in a wheelchair in the driveway, watching his kids play. It was a frequent reminder that I am so lucky to have my health, I never want to take that for granted.
Now for something completely different ... yesterday I went to the Museum of Science and Industry for the first time in years. The Sailor and I went with a few friends, one of whom brought his son. It was fun to check out the new exhibits, as well as ones that have been there for a long time.
|I'm happy to report that the baby chicks are still there.|
|Petroleum Planet exhibit|
|This was also part of the petroleum exhibit|
|The new Science Storms exhibit|
|So if you ever get caught near a tornado, just run in laps around it?|
|When I grow up ...|
|They've had the U-505 sub for years, but recently opened a new exhibit for it.|
What's your favorite museum? I love the Museum of Science & Industry, since I love math and am fascinated by all of the applications for it. The Art Institute of Chicago my other favorite. My parents used to take me there a lot (for many of the special exhibits) but I don't go as much anymore.
