Happy belated Thanksgiving! :) Hope you ate tons and relaxed like crazy. I know I did. I took a break from blogging because I spent the long Thanksgiving with my family in sunny Florida. Even though I ended up coming down with a bad cold at the start of the trip, I still enjoyed tons of time with my wonderful family and beautiful niece. What a perfect way to celebrate all of the things I have to be thankful for. The highlight of the trip though was the culmination of the past few months of training and a race I'd been looking forward to since I heard about it this time last year--the Space Coast Half Marathon! I'm still too tired from the trip (and being sick...oh and a crazy Monday back at school with the monkeys...) to do a full recap yet, but here's my favorite picture:
Oh, and by the way...I blew my half marathon PR outta the water! I dug deep and pulled out a race I didn't even know I had in me, taking over 16 minutes off of my previous PR. I think I am still in shock. I can't wait to tell you all about it soon when I can find the words to truly do the recap justice. :)
All in all, it was an amazing weekend that reminded me about the many, many ways I am blessed and the things I have to be thankful for, including the gift of running.
