Thoughts & Prayers

I opted for a rest day today. Again. I am just too tired. I wanted to come home, rest, eat a good meal and go to bed early. I will be heading for the cities this weekend to help my sister and her husband move into their new house! So, probably no kind of workout will happen in the next four days, except for lifting and moving some heavy stuff. Unless I get up for a run tomorrow morning.

I wanted to send out my thoughts a prayers to those in Northwood, ND. On Sunday, one nasty tornado struck this small town about 40 miles north of where I live, killing one man and injuring many. The damage is awful. Most small towns in ND started school this week, and as of yesterday, they still didn't know what they were going to do for school. I was sent the following pictures from a teacher I used to work with a couple years ago. She lives in Northwood. (the dates on the pictures are wrong....)
This last photo is of the school...right in the middle of the pic.....
