    What a week… one that empowered me. ‘Cause I chose to see it that way. Make it that way. Everything is a decision and a shape of thinking. From one student to another, the complaining and grievances, no matter how legitimate, bring only more exhaustion and distance you further from your aims, what you want to experience.

    I will tell you this… Mr. Foreman is an easing, calm read… even in communicating with him, there is no aggression, only invitation. Really hope I can get him in class.. He asked what I teach, so…..

    You’re all so quiet…. If someone posts 100 words on what they expect from Tom Foreman, I will award you a shit-ton of credit. But has to be in the next 10 minutes..

    I ordered the book on Tuesday but haven’t gotten it yet. I looked him up a little bit on google, but more of the book. So whatever is coming, I don’t know what to expect.

    I googled Tom Foreman and I saw that he is a CNN journalist I watch an interview with him on CNN where he was out running I’m talking about his new book at the time which is the one we’re going to read. He said a quote that I really liked which kind of goes back to what I was saying about how I will reach my goals he says justTake the next step in the next one until you reach your goals

  11. Just watched a youtube video on Tom, from what I am getting he wants us to value time, family and relationships. He speaks about change and how all that effects the time we have. I am actually really wanting to read more on him now. These are things that I want to learn more about, juggling family as time goes on and your own pathway in the life you live. He seems like a really friendly man who is very family oriented. I mean he has to be right? He really did all of this for his daughter, and well himself too.

    In all honestly I don’t really know what to expect from Mr. Foreman. I was actually pretty surprised with what the book was about as I have never read a book similar to his. Not in the writing or style but more on the fact that it is about a middle aged man deciding to run marathons. Not something I think I would pick for myself but then again, I felt the same about Sedaris and Irby and ended up enjoying them, so I’m hoping I will have the same reaction to foreman. But non the less, I’m staying open minded and im eager to see what this book is all about!

  15. From the research that I have done, he seems like a family man. His family runs as a bonding experience instead of sitting on the couch. I expect of him many stories of how running has changed him, things that he may have learned while running. If this is correct, he ran in college, and thats how he met his wife. He said that if it wasnt for running he would not have met his wife and his life wouldnt be what it is toady. I believe he has many life lessons that he has learned. In an interview they said that he is funny, hopefully he is, coming from sams book.
