This sister rocks! She is the oldest Ironman athelete, she’s a 3-time champ, and she’s a nun! Her name is Sister Madonna Bruder and she is 77 years old. I like this mindset: Buder recalls once questioning whether it was appropriate for a nun to compete in races. She doesn’t worry anymore. “You don’t need to apologize for the gifts you’ve been given,” she says. “Only apologize for not using them.” Here is the full article and video. Amen sister!
Between that and the Olympics, I’m actually feeling motivated. We watched the opening ceremonies and were totally blown away. The boys (especially Gabriel) are glued to the coverage. Even Garrett is catching the fever, last night he tumbled and danced all over the living room after watching the women’s gymnastics! We may have a little “Hamm” on our hands! Lol. We are pumped for team USA.
We are almost done with school shopping. I just need to buy shoes and school supplies and we’ll be set! My girlfriend told me to hit Kohl’s for the sales on sneaks and organizational bins. I also want to get an alarm clock for the boys this year. Poor Jim is bracing to get himself and two boys out the door by himself and that is no easy feat. The first day is 2 weeks away already!
