Today I took a rest day and only ran a mile since I got up at 4:45 to visit this amazing lab school in Chicago. This school really is on the cutting edge of the future of education. It was an awesome experience and inspiring for a teacher that really never enjoyed learning in a traditional classroom. If you want to check out the school yourself, their website can be found at GCE lab school. It was good to take time away from our school and get a different perspective. I also enjoyed the time in the city as well as traveling with several other like-minded teachers. I love forward thinking and progress. All of this excitement pushed my run to after sunset but the starts were bright and it was refreshing after a long, exhilarating day.
