Earning My Thanksgiving Pie This Weekend

This morning for the first time ever I am running a 5K race to benefit a local hospital. Since it is my first time running in any type of race since elementary school field day, and since I hate running, I have been finding all sorts of reasons to be unsettled about this event:

  1. I am incredibly nervous!
  2. I don’t have “professional” running attire.
  3. My iPod has been telling me I have been finishing the 5K practice runs in the park in roughly 40 minutes, and yesterday I ran on a treadmill with the iPod and realized it’s not calibrated or something so I’ve really only been preparing for 2 miles!
  4. It’s really cold out!
  5. I just want to sleep in…

Then I realized this morning I should shut my mouth, stretch my legs and do my best because there are people out there who physically can’t run and I am one lucky gal to be able to participate today. Today I am thankful for:

  1. The ability to run.
  2. A nice warm, Subaru to take me to the race and back home.
  3. My future sister-in-law, whose spirit and energy have pushed me to do this with her, and who inspired me by running her first half marathon.
  4. A local hospital that is working hard to care for the community, and for our hearts.
  5. A fabulous Thanksgiving dinner waiting for me at the finish line!
