So Thankful

Listen, I know it’s trite to write a thankful post and then post it on Thanksgiving.  But as I reflect on this last year of running all I can think of are all of the things that I am thankful for.  So now you have to read them.  But at least after this you can eat a piece of pumpkin pie.

Most importantly I am thankful for the people.  Running more than anything has given me people that I would never have otherwise met.  My running friends are the most friendly, talented, loving, supportive, FAST, awesome.

i love this picture.  Matthew COULD NOT with Sarah standing on the scooter.  this pic is hanging on my wall.

What’s even more exciting is turning my already life besties into running friends.  Its an amazing thing.  I love it almost more than running.  Almost.

These pictures literally make my life.  All made possible by running.

My family — Jan, Paul, Eric, Amanda — have been awesome.  They help with fundraising, they come to races, they PARTICIPATE in races, they ride on long training runs, they make medal racks and tutus.  I couldn’t do it without them.

Of course, I’m way thankful everyday for MB who makes these running adventures possible.  From driving to cheering to literally bankrolling — he is an unbelievable constant.  I’m obsessed with how awesome he is.

Friends.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I hope you do all the turkey trotting, pie eating, relaxing and hugging.  Hugging is important.
