Mockingbird

5.1 miles on the home Landice. Planned on 6.2, but cranking it to 10.2 mph for the last half mile of the first 5.2 blew a fuse, treadmill halted abrubtly, I nearly ran into the front. I wonder if it had something to do with the fact that I have a treadmill, TV, stereo, cable modem, router, and computer going through a single outlet :-/ No fuses left in the house, crap, done, oh well, a decent run, just no proper cool down. Splits were like 7:13, 6:54, 6:48, 6:43, 6:21.

Watched "To Kill A Mockingbird" with this kids, what a great movie, and book, of course, tragic but hopeful. Gregory Peck really does such an awesome job as Atticus Finch, and the kids are great too (that link has a recording of Atticus' closing statments in the trial.) We actually arranged my son's initials to be JEM, after Jem; I wanted to name my daughter Scout, but that got vetoed, as well as my lobby to name my first son (from a previous life), Linus. These older movies move so much more slowly and calmly than movies now, which I like, what an old fogie I'm becoming.

My sister named her daughter Harper Lee. It's both of ours all time favorite book and movie. If I had a son, his name would be Atticus. Thanks for the idea, I want to watch this with Kenza this summer.

Thanks for your thoughts on my difficult 2 miler. It made me think about what I'd been eating and I realized I need to eat more! My husband is trying to lose weight, so I'm trying to be careful about what I eat around him - to help out. I can still be careful, but I need to get my fuel, too!

Love To Kill a Mockingbird! Great book and movie!
