Running a 5K on Turkey Day. And cute puppies.

When I started running this year, I had to start at square one. I was running a 16 minute mile and a 50 minute 5K. I got winded very easily and I was extremely overweight.

But I kept getting out there.

And somewhere around the 50 pound mark, I fell in love with running.

It is only natural that I have a love of the road. My dad loves to get in the car and go for a road trip. To him, the road is an adventure waiting to happen.

For me, it's the same thing. There is something about the road, my tennis shoes, and my tunes that just clears my mind.



Today, I ran a mile PR of 10:44 and a 5K of 34:15. When I crossed that finish line I felt triumphant.



I have come so far this year and I'm proud of myself. 

So this year, I am thankful for running. It's made me, me again.

Happiness looks like this.

After that, I'm really thankful for Brandon and my puppies.

Brandon has been my constant cheerleader and I really do not know what I would do without him. I know that I never would have moved across country to go to law school.  He makes me brave. He's my secret weapon.


I also am really thankful for my puppies. They bring a smile to our faces on every rough day without fail.



I hope you spent the day with loved ones. I know I did.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
