1. Yoga prepares the body in ways I could not have imagined. For the past year and a half I have exclusively practiced yoga for exercise. I practice nearly everyday on a good week, but on average it is probably more like 4 times a week. As I mentioned yesterday, it's been about 5 years since I have run and it's been about 5 years since I have done any major cardiovascular exercise. Today I went for a run. Granted it was for only about 20 minutes and if I made it a little over a mile in that time it would be miraculous, but I got out there nonetheless. I was shocked that I wasn't winded, I wasn't desperate to stop. I was able to continue my promise of nonviolence to myself and run. Here it is the end of the day and nothing hurts, I'm not sore and I actually enjoyed myself. I attribute that magic to yoga.
2. Apple vs apple. I might just be the topic of conversation at the local Police Station today. Earlier this afternoon I was pulled over for talking on a cell phone while driving. Turns out I was actually eating an apple, which the officers mistook for a cell phone. We laughed about it as the officer said I was driving really well for someone who was also eating an apple. I told him I can also pee and order from Amazon Prime at the same time. He said neither was a crime.
3. I just found out from a friend that there is a magical thing known as a cinnamon broom for sale at Trader Joes. I have never seen this broom that fills the house with the smell of cinnamon, but I am totally going to get one tomorrow.
