You probably don’t remember me…

LizaLiza

When I was teaching this weekend, one of the students came up to me during a break after lunch and said, “You probably don’t remember me, but…”

(This kind of lead in always upsets my stomach.  Oh no, what kind of misstep have I made?)

“You were one of my instructors up in Alaska in 2005.”

(Instant relief. 12 years is a respectable amount of time to lose a face memory — especially when that face was altered by over 20 days on the Alaskan tundra and glaciers.)

I looked at him closely and started to remember.

That’s him in the blue.  I’m the sleepy looking one.

I can’t believe we didn’t take a 12-years later picture together, but we didn’t.  At the end of class on Sunday, he told me that Alaska course had changed his life.  And said thanks.  I’ve been on a high ever since.  I’ll get back to teaching in the field again one of these days.

Running: 90 minutes easy to moderate effort.
