Post Marathon Miles and Gratitude Thursday.

Hello there! Happy Friday eve. It’s my favorite part of the work week. This morning I did 6 miles post marathon to celebrate. It was a good time.

Not gonna lie my legs were pretty stiff at the beginning of this week but have loosened up tremendously with the help of teaching a couple of spin classes. I blame it on the marathon and then all of that Vegas walking. Any day I can go down the stairs the right way after a marathon though is a good day.

Also, me and my foam roller have had a very special relationship this week.

So since we are a week out from Thanksgiving (Also, where the heck has November gone!?) I thought I would list a few things I am thankful for on this lovely Thursday. Actually I prefer the word gratitude. It’s definitely something I’ve had a lot of this year as I reflect back on 2015.

I have gratitude for…

My strong running legs. I’ve have been a marathon running machine this year and am happy to see improvement with my times also. Last year I was pushing the 5 hour mark and I’m well below that now. I see another sub 4 run in my near future.

Awesome girlfriends. The kind of friends where you don’t see each other for months and then you get back together and pick up right where you left off. Those kinds of friends are simply priceless.

The opportunity to travel and take vacations at a moments notice. Up next…Hawaii in December, San Diego, Houston and perhaps Miami. Next year I hope to do some more traveling overseas.

My spin instructor gig. I love teaching fitness classes and inspiring people though teaching. I think it’s important to show people that you can have FUN and work hard and do what you love. Plus it’s kind of like being a DJ. I’m always and forever looking for good music.

Coffee. Especially piping hot after a hard run on a chilly day. That really is the best.

Fleece lined leggings. Nuff said.

  1. Um, so when you’re in Miami, we could meet up if it works out, time wise! (and you’re okay with taking a blog acquaintanship into the real world 😉
    A lot of things to be grateful for. 🙂 Walking down the stairs the right way 1-day after a marathon is one of them!
