Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am likely off running in our local Turkey Day 5K as you’re reading this. I look forward to this 5K every year. It is one of my favorites. The weather is usually ideal for running and it’s just a fun event afterward with the free beer in the park and all. {Hey, I can be a little bad, right?} Is there a Thanksgiving race in your town?

I’d like to take a moment to be thankful for my health. Not everyone out there is able to even run a race. The fact that I can breathe easy, complete tasks without ailment and am disease-free is a very big blessing. I thank God for the ability to do the things I want to do…that my body is strong and able…I try never to take that for granted…that is why fitness is very important to me.

I have a favorite quote that I use at the bottom of my work email signature…and I believe it is very fitting for today…

Steve Prefontaine was a great American runner that lost his life in a car accident at the young age of 24 – in his prime. He never once wasted his God-given ability in the years he had. My advice to you always with fitness is to take today and take it now. Do your absolute best with the time you have.

We’ve not a lot planned today as far as Thanksgiving dinner goes – my family is 3,000 miles away and Jake’s family left town to visit his dad’s side in Illinois. It is actually also our 5th wedding anniversary today, so we plan on cooking up a few smaller portions of our favorite Thanksgiving foods and having a picnic at Breach Inlet, Sullivan’s Island where we were married. The boys in tow too, of course. {And hey, less Thanksgiving calories for me this year!}

Hope you are enjoying this holiday with loved ones. xoxo.

  1. Happy Anniversary! What a great day to have a fun little Thanksgiving-ish picnic with the family! Oh and I hope you had a great time at the race! I have always secretly wanted to do the Turkey Trot but the idea of getting up that early makes me think the parade on TV is a better plan… hehe
