This morning I will be taking part in my first annual Thanksgiving 5k. I will be making this a reoccurring part of my future holiday plans. I feel that it is important to start these traditions as part of my healthy life. I love that I get to spend my morning with my friends since I don’t get to spend the dinner portion of my night with them.
I just wanted to take a moment to say Thank You to everyone that stops by my blog, thank you for your support along my journey! Thank you for being here with me. I am so thankful to have such a great support system with my friends here in blog-world and on twitter and Facebook. I am also so blessed to have such an amazing community here in Minnesota. Without Jen over at www.priorfatgirl.com I dont think that I would have such a far reaching support system.
I am also thankful for the #f2fpack, they were there with me, through my first 5k all those months ago. We all have our ups and downs and we keep trucking on through our journeys!
I am also thankful for the Charities Challenge and Gary Westlund in particular for being so amazing and supportive of those of us trying to make exercise a part of our lives. If you are in the Twin Cities (or are coming into town) this is an AMAZING group to do a race with and I highly encourage you to. They celebrate everyone finishing, because there are those of us for whom finishing really is a victory alone!
I am thankful this year that I continue to make the choice to keep being healthy in the face of negativity and criticism. I am strong in my convictions and that I have found my voice.
I am most thankful that I am finally regaining my life and health.
I hope everyone has a spectacular day whether it is spent with family or friends, whether you eat a Turkey or Tofurky (yum!)! remember today isn’t about the food, it is about giving thanks for how blessed your life is.
