“This school is the first new thing I ever had to call my own. Im going to stitch me a dress in the sewing classroom. One day, Ill be a teacher like Miss Shaw. Thank you, Mr. Rosenwald. Yours truly, Ovella.“
Dear Mr. Rosenwald by Carole Weatherford published in 2006 was such a touching book about multiple different scenarios but about the same people. It is an empowering story about an African-American community who builds their own school. Based on the true story of the Rosenwald schools built in the rural African-American South in the 1920s, the story talks about a third grader Ovella as her family and community help each other build a new school.
So, for @wanderinglynn ‘s #BookFitnessChallenge photo challenge, my favourite piece of fitness gear is this pair of Adidas Supernova ST Ws. I have 4 pairs, they are *that* good. Two have yet to be worn, one has done some serious mileage training for a marathon, but this is the pair that I actually wore for this year‘s London Marathon (as you can see, the tracker is still attached!) and I had not a single blister, and all 10 toe-nails were intact!
