The holiday season is upon us...It's that time of year when there are delicious treats around every corner. If we are not careful we will end up as rotund as ol' St. Nick
err, ignore that last statement...
For me, it's all about the Turkey Day Feast...I like to start my day out with a turkey trot, that way I may enjoy the meal that follows...
This year I will not be running in an actual "Turkey Trot", I will get up early and quietly log my miles, reflecting on all that I am grateful to have in my life.
I have my health. I am continuing to develop my fitness and slowly shedding pounds...turning myself into a lean, mean trail running machine!
I have my Sweetest Boo at my side. I am so grateful to be in the same city, same home, same bed as my beautiful wife. Together we are creating a warm, comfortable home.
I have recently made many new friends, with whom I have shared miles on the trails. It is wonderful to have awesome people in my life who have the same passion I have for running.
I have my freedom. Take time to thank a soldier for their service, many of them will be away from their loved ones this holiday season.
Finally, I have my sobriety, without this, none of the above would be possible. Thank you to those that have been there with me along the way.
Take some time to log some miles this week and reflect on what you are grateful to have; it is time well spent.
