Grateful that I got through 14 miles of this last weekend without slipping and sliding –
Grateful for this gem that made me smile in the midst of the snow and rain on that run –
Grateful for a friend who asks, “Wanna run 17-18 with me at the beach” and runs 20 with me instead -
Grateful for cool scenes on a 20 mile run (more snow falling; snow where there should be sand) –
Grateful for an opportunity to stretch out my hamstrings post-20 miler (no choice here….beach house still plowed in) –
I won’t pretend to have enjoyed all aspects of this winter’s training, but as long as I stay open to the good things that are happening around me, I am grateful.
I’m even more grateful that it is officially Spring. Now, go away snow. My gratitude for you is on thin ice. No pun intended.
