Happy Thanksgiving.

First Happy Thanksgiving. 

After I pulled a muscle in my quad this week I opted not to do the Turkey Trot in my area.  Though it was upsetting because I love this race, I’ll get to see them next weekend too.  My Thanksgiving plans are small and relaxed.  My family is close and we always have a nice Thanksgiving dinner with my immediate family.

Each time I come home I realize I am thankful for more and more things. It’s funny to put life into perspective.  I find myself in a stressful spot of my life right now.  Short time stress I guess you could say.  I am looking for a job; I’m longing to get back into what I love (running), and by no means settled.  Yet these are just trivial stressors and I’m truly thankful for my life and the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

I am thankful for…

My family…




My friends both near and far…


Of course seeing Laura in Atlanta was a lot of fun!

My health. ..

My legs…

My off sense of humor…

and for trivial things I get to enjoy in life that I sometimes take for granted…coffee, nice clothing, going to restaurants and having a nice quality of life.

I’m honestly just Thankful for my life.

Though despite not knowing any answers to the questions I’m being tested with I’m thankful for everything and I know I’ll make it through.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Questions for you:

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Hollie! I opted out of my local yokel turkey trot too–my Ironman cousin asked if I wanted to run with her instead. She also wanted me to go to a bootcamp with her, but I opted out of that too. 😉 Have fun with the fam today!

  2. I know what you mean about feeling stressed and not knowing much about the future, yet feeling very thankful! I hope your day has been great 🙂

  3. Ridiculously thankful that you and I became such good friends this year- I don’t think I would have made it through without you~
