On Friday, history took place and the Egyptian people won their battle. I'm crossing my fingers for them to have a smooth road ahead of them. I'm not Egyptian but I was filled with pride and joy all day on Friday. It's pretty incredible that a 17 day youth revolution took down a 30 year regime. And it was fairly peaceful (although lives were lost)! I have a feeling that it will have a ripple effect and that lots of change will go forward in the Middle East. What is even more amazing is that Facebook and Twitter had a huge effect on this revolution. The technology of our day is brilliant!
CB and I ran the Valentine's Day Dash on Saturday. It was his first 5k and my second. He totally killed it and I shaved off two minutes from my previous time. Not bad at all. I can't wait to do another one soon. Running 5K's are addictive!
Tomorrow we will be celebrating the day of love with another long run together and feasting on a homemade meal.
I love Valentine's day with the Cute Boy. How are you going to celebrate?
P S: I'm leaving you with one of my favorite videos from Egypt. It make me happy. I love how proud he is!
P S S: For more first hand experiences of the Egyptian Revolution, visit my friend's blog. She happened to be visiting right before it happened and had to be evacuated.
I watched Al-Jazeera non stop and Ayman did an amazing job at reporting.
