Thankful Thursday 3/10/2016

Well, hello Spring! A little early, aren’t you? Let’s try to keep things a bit less toasty for another 40 days, shall we? 🙂

Another surprise at the house this week – first seen out the window next to the treadmill

How did I miss this celebration? (our library branch staff have a great sense of humor)

Now, on to this week’s selection of things I’m thankful for!

  • Days nice enough to walk before or after dinner, alone or with DH
  • My triathlete friend
  • Caffeinated gum
  • Taking a risk (or a few) and trying new things, new approaches, and having them go pretty well!
  • My sister
  • Cream of Rice cereal
  • My SOS Rehydrate drink
  • The universe maybe (maybe!) getting through to me a little on being more process-focused than outcome-focused
  • Books – just finished Raising the Barre by Lauren Kessler, recommend. Lots of good stuff in this that translates to my running and life in general.
  • Still reading back issues of Marathon & Beyond and enjoying them, think it’s time to order more
  • Magazines – running, triathlon, local and regional running mags
  • The feeling of accomplishment after you’ve done something a bit scary or a bit outside your comfort zone (having it go okay helps!)
  • The internet….having it come back after an outage reminds me of how much I enjoy and depend on it
  • My chiro
  • A couple nights of better sleep
  • Being able to sleep in my own bed (knock wood, fingers crossed it lasts…)
  • Mona fartleks
  • Podcasts
  • NBCSports is going to broadcast Boston (since Universal is gone). I can tape it and watch it after I get home!
  • People and small companies helping me out in finding their product

What are you thankful for this week?  Has spring sprung where you are?
