Happy Thanksgiving

Just an abbreviated post today…

I am thankful for the ability to run 4 hilly miles in the cold on Thanksgiving morning – and although I did not beat my goal time of 45 minutes – I was in at 45:30 according to my Garmin & 46:46 according to the finish line clock – I did it with no pain.

I am thankful that I don’t have to spend alcohol-free family gatherings, and instead get to hang out with friends & my locally-based cousin.

I am thankful for the internet!

I am thankful for champagne (mmmm…mimosas).

I am thankful for the wonderful blogging/running community in Portland. I got to meet yet another running blogger, and got to hang with Junk Miles, too (who did the run before flying away).

I am thankful for the architect, who went to the market this morning to get me champagne for my mimosas & surprised me with the gift of pastries, too! (Also, he chopped & sauteed the onions for my butternut squash gratin.)

I hope you all have a wonderful day!  Cheers.
