morning babble / Sunday 11-14-21

This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much. When all else fails – go watch the video!

I haven’t run yet. #318 will take place on the outside trails with my son. The two of us will be running in the Turkey Trot next Saturday along with some friends and their kids. Not sure yet, if I’m going to go for any personal records or run next to my son. I only ponder that because I know that there will be 2 kids that he can run with – I would feel sorta out of place. There should be more where it could be just me and him. AND – I know that there will be a day where he could be way ahead of me.

Muddy November continues on – Go get some MUD/WTR – http://fbuy.me/v/bevans11

Books!

  • The Code Breaker by Walter Isaacson – Finished! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ll admit that it was a tough listen at times. I had to go back and relisten – whether it was a moment in time, when my brain just went off looking for a unicorn or I fell asleep. A whole lot of science and I like & believe in science. One of the stars of the book was Jennifer Doudna along with the discovery of RNA and the powers that it can have over issues like our modern-day Corona virus problem. What drew me to this book is 1) Walter Isaacson wrote it and 2) How Jennifer Doudna overcame her guidance counselor telling her that girls don’t grow up to be scientists. She got to tell that story after receiving the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
