Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I am thankful for so many things... my three beautiful boys, my husband (who cooked us Thanksgiving Dinner), my wonderful friends and family,  my health and the health of my family, having a great job and awesome co-workers (that I also get to spend the holiday with), opportunities that I have in life... my list could go on and on. We are so blessed and it is great to take time to think about all of these things and to be thankful for all that we have!

Today we completed The Thanksgiving Day Virtual 5K hosted by Kiley @DailyVitaminF. We participated in her Virtual Holiday races last year and didn't want to miss doing them this year as well. We couldn't have asked for a better day to get out and run- 60 degrees on Thanksgiving in Wisconsin! It was amazing!!

Riley and Isaac rode their bikes for the 3.1 miles while Tim and I ran- me pushing Aidan in the stroller. It felt great to get out and run again today! It wasn't fast by any means. The past few days I have felt like I was getting a cold and it was evident in our run this morning when it was much harder to breathe. But we did it and that is what matters!
 This was also day one of the Runner's World 2012 Holiday Run Streak. Check it out and join us in "streaking" through the holidays!
What are you thankful for today?
Did you get out and run today? Have you ever participated in any virtual races?
Do you run when you have a cold or aren't feeling well?


  1. I am thankful for amazing friends who have been amazing and understanding and a lot of fun! I am thankful for my beautiful babies and wonderful hubby. And I am thankful I have the ability to run despite being a little lop-sided.

    Ran 5.6 miles and yes I usually run when I am a little sick.

  2. I'm so jealous of your good weather! I can't believe your husband is wearing shorts and a short sleeve t! Thanks for participating again this year :) I love that you make it a family race. Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Kiley- We were blessed with beautiful weather for Thanksgiving (60+ degrees) but I think it was the last day of it. Today is VERY different!I don't think we are getting above freezing!
      Thank you for hosting the Holiday Virtual Races! They really do encourage us to get out there and be active and my family loves to do them. The kids love to get the picture taken and then help post it saying that we finished.
