It’s Thursday already? Man, I love a short week. I have so much to be thankful for right now but I’ve gotta keep it short since I didn’t have time to write this last night. I figure a little list will do, no?
Today I’m thankful for:
1. Gatorade. As a former hater of sports drinks I’ve now become a full fledged lover of Gatorade. I have always been opposed to taking in calories via liquids, so it surprised me just how much better I felt when I drank the stuff during a tough ride and even the day before a workout. No more drinking my hater-ade, this stuff works for oh, say 100 mile bike rides and days filled with running and swimming. I drink the G2 when I can but sometimes the fully loaded is needed. Seriously, who am I?
2. Summer beach running!

3. Blogging friends swim! We met up on Saturday after our run for a swim clinic put on by a guy named Coach Matt. It was a great workout and we practiced entering and exiting the water efficiently. You can read the whole deal on Steph’s blog HERE.

4. Running with old friends. Last night I got to run with Cute K (remember her from my Ft Lauderdale mary?) and Gary. I hadn’t seen either of them in quite some time so I was thrilled with our little running reunion. Always great to catch up during a good run.
5. Lloyd. I’m always thankful for Lloyd but he has been having a few health issues lately. Mainly, seizures or what they call “fly catching.” He had been sleeping under the bed and not snuggling as much as he used and he just generally didn’t seem like himself. Fortunately, the vet put him on a seizure med and he’s doing much, much better. Hooray!
What are you thankful for today?
I'm thankful for friends. Especially friends who come together in times of need, to help someone they maybe don't even know. It's pretty amazing what can happen when you rally together.
Aww I hope Mr. Lloyd gets better. Im glad the meds are working
I'm thankful for new beginnings today
Loving the short work week!
I just can't get myself to like Gatorade…don't know why! I'm thankful for having only 4.5 more weeks until baby….feeling ginormous lately!
Thankful for getting speed work in again! And friends who I miss, hint hint 😉
I used to have hatorade for gatorade too. But you are right when you are doing more than just running it really does help!
I remember when you used to hate on the G2 when I was drinking it after runs. I still can't handle it on the runs but I could see how it would be helpful during a 100 ride!
So glad Lloyd is feeling better! Give him some snuggles for me too!
I am thankful for my wife…who dragged me out to dance class last night. I had a grea time and look forward to more in the future…which is weird considering my prudish self would of never of attempted dancing without her involvement!
Looks like a bunch of fun with other bloggers!
I am thankful for YOU deciding to run a marathon with me. Wait, is this comment two months premature? 😉
Love this post!
So, I'm stoked to no longer have plantar fasc and am happy to be able to ride, run and swim to my heart's content!
(Oh and all the sunshine that I get to do it in here in So California!)
Onward and upward, always.
