I'm thankful for...running and fitness
I used to run when I was younger in school. I was a pretty decent short distance runner, especially given my size. I ran 100 M, 200 M, 400 M, and I ran as anchor on our 4X100 M relay team. 200 M was where I really shined. Somehow though, I always envied the distance runners. But, I never did it.
Fast forward to this year and I started running again as a means to lose a couple pounds, get back in shape, get healthier, de-stress & unwind, and generally feel better about myself. And now I'm loving it.
I've also recently started cross training and am constantly amazed at what I can accomplish. I'm thankful to be able to run and to be able to do the things I do.
