friday five: gratitude

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and had a chance to run a Turkey Trot in the morning before binging on your Thanksgiving Day feast :) 

Like every Friday, I am linking up with the DC Trifecta: Courtney at Eat Pray Run DCCynthia at You Signed up for What?, and Mar at Mar on the Run, as I do every Friday. This week's theme is "Gratitude". Below is a list of five things I am grateful for this year:

1. Family. This is a no-brainer for me, and is probably high on most people's list. The family I was born in to is a group of fantastic people, I have a supportive husband, two adorable dogs, and great in-laws. I am thankful every day for each and every one of them.

2. Friends. I adore my friends. They make me laugh and are always there for me when I need them. Some of them even fit into the 'family' category.

3. Running. I am thankful for running. It's a great stress release, fun way to stay fit and healthy (or at least trying to be these things), and even though I started out not enjoying it, it's something I now love. 

4. Being a BibRave Pro. Joining the BibRave Pro ambassadorship is one of the best thing's I've ever done. I'm thankful I decided to apply (it took a bit of courage for me to put myself out there), and even more thankful that I was chosen. I've met a great group of people that I can now call friends, and it's been a great experience. It's helped me to connect more with the running community, and other than my blog, joining #bibchat on Tuesday nights was how I first started interacting with other runners. I've also had the chance to try out some great products. It's been a great few months :) PS They are taking applications for 2015 Pros – only open until 11/30, so get on it if you are interested.

5. My readers and all the new friends I've made on Twitter/Instagram. I am thankful for each and every one of you, my readers, along with all of the new friends I've made on Twitter and Instagram. It's been so great to interact with so many new people who are supportive, inspirational, and motivating. Thank you for being awesome!

What are you grateful for this year?

  1. All great things to be grateful for! Your list is very similar to mine. Except for number 4 mine would be Gone For a Run Ambassador. Have a great wkend!-L

    1. Great minds/runners ;) Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!

  2. Wonderful list. I have great in-laws as well. We are lucky in that respect!

    1. Totally agree! I hear so many in-law horror stories and am so thankful I don't have to deal with such things, since we get along splendidly :)

  3. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I didn't get a chance to write a post this Friday but I enjoyed reading everyones five :)

  4. Love the list! I'll have to check out Bib Rave and learn more, I know I looked at the site a while ago but haven't spent too much time on it. I love race recaps - will check it out more!
