Redefining enduranceJune 14, 2006
The person in my family with the most endurance? That might be my mom. She’s not a runner and never has been one, but she’s spent the last 19 years teaching in the public schools of Rutland County, Vermont, mostly at the 1st-grade level. 19 years of helping children with every problem imaginable, from dyslexia to incontinence. It boggles the mind.
Tomorrow Mom crosses that special finish line known as retirement. If any Rutlanders are reading this, be sure to give her a high-five and a hug for me.
