February 28, 2010

Today I am Grateful for:

Running. I couldn't talk myself out of running yesterday and I ended up doing the Houston Rodeo Run, one of my favorite runs. I didn't do as well as I have in the past and that is okay with me. I did 1:03:51 for the 10K. But, with almost no training this month I'm Grateful at my age I was out there and running with the other 12,000 people. It was a really beautiful day and I think I would have been sad if I missed it.

Family Time. It was great to spend time with my family and friends. After the Rodeo Run we went to the BBQ Cook off and did the carnival. There were lots of fun people to look at and the boys had a great time.

Isaac's First Birthday. I'm Grateful to be part of my godson's birthday party today. He had a rough start to his life having been born with CAH and then getting pneumonia all within the first month of his life. But the little guy is a fighter and today is as happy and healthy as he can be. He is always smiling and happy. He reminds me of my son when he was little.

Higher Power. I am very Grateful that I have a higher power that I experience on a daily basis. I never would have had that without the experience of my recovery.


  1. I am not a runner..I would rather read a book about a runner :-D It sounds like so much fun, I think I could do one that had walking. ::hugs to son and Godson::


  2. Good for you to get out there and do the run.
