Here we are friends... we're halfway through the holiday week and we made it to
What I Ate Wednesday.
As the week moves forward I can't help but realize how much I have to be thankful for.
I'm thankful for my health. Since 2004 I've spent every Thanksgiving morning except one (stomach flu... yuck) at our local Turkey Trot 5K. I started out as a walker and now I can call myself a runner.
Mandy (below at packet pickup) and Grandma Glo will walk the 5K.
I'm thankful that my family is casual.
They won't mind when I show up to dinner in my new race shirt.
Revenge of the Turkey- ha!
I'm thankful that I'm a member of a classy local Runner's Club... Turkey Trot wine anyone?
I'm thankful that I found running in my 30's. It has been a source of sanity for me that I never knew was possible. I'm thankful for the friends I have made in the running community.
And I'm thankful for fancy-schmancy running socks. (You could win your own HERE)
I'm thankful that Mandy likes breakfast.
Sometimes it's my only chance to get food in her belly.
(Tuesday was a whole grain waffle, peanut butter & banana sandwich)
I'm thankful for a quiet Tuesday night at home with time to make chocolate chip cookies
for no reason.
I'm thankful for a husband who is willing to grill year-round. (yep, even in a blizzard)
But mostly, I'm thankful for these girlies and the wonderful times we have together.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Check back Friday for our Turkey Trot recap!
