I am thankful every single day for everything I have. But now with this pandemic, I am even more thankful. I know it is tough for everyone.
I am very thankful for running. It is my ME time. I listen to music, think about my day, or cry. Let me tell you other reasons why I am thankful for running.
🟣 You. As I mentioned above, it is a tough time for everyone. However, you’ve all been there for me. You inspire and motivate me. You also believe in me. Oh, and you listen when I complain about the school situation.
🟣 Working with a great coach. I have known my coach for a few years but this year was the first time working with him. I have had many great runs and have seen many improvements. I am very excited to see what I do next year. Watch out everyone!
🟣 My running shoes and gear. You all know how much I love my running shoes. They may be from the same company but I love the feeling of wearing new shoes every couple of months. What’s not to like about new gear? I treat myself and love buying some new Oiselle items. They make me feel good and make me happy too.
🟣 Being outside. Thanks to Covid, we are “required” to stay home. If it isn’t for the trip to the grocery store, I wouldn’t even have the chance to go outside. Running gets me outside even if it is just an hour. My mother rarely leaves the house and many times I feel bad about it, but I know it is for the best.
🟣 Running streak. Knock on wood no injuries. I had plantar fasciitis last year and it was one of the worst injuries. I began a running streak in August but had to stop running when I quarantined when my mom and sister got Covid. I started again two weeks later and today it is day #88. Not sure how long I will keep it going but for now it is a huge motivator for me.
I know it will be different from previous years but I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.
