Thanksgiving Day Run

Woke up to bright and glorious day on Thanksgiving and decided to go for a run. What better way to give thanks for being alive and healthy than to hit the pavement for 5 miles right? It was decisively crisp outside but the sun was shining and that's more than enough to put a smile on my face. And off I went, drove off any heaviness on my mind and in heart by filling my lungs with sun-filled fresh air (well as fresh as NYC air can get anyway). I felt great. Wide eyed and bushy tailed? Yup. That was me.
And then Thanksgiving dinner happened... dun dun dun!! Why do we do this to ourselves?!? I mean don't get me wrong I am grateful for the time I spent with loved one and the delicious food I got to eat but why eat so much??? I felt sick honestly lol
Part of the problem is I'm not used to over-eating anymore, and I'm very grateful for that! Oh boy. Don't miss those days. Needless to say I went for a post-Thanksgiving run this morning to make up for all the extra calories I packed on last night

If have to compare both runs by audio description, yesterday's glorious Thanksgiving run sounded like this: WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

and today's sorry post-Thanksgiving run sounded like this:
womp womp. womp womp. pant. womp...
lol for real though. But felt better after it was done, as usual...

Anyhoo. This year I'm thankful for being healthy, for the love I receive from so many and for stepping out of my comfort zone which has brought and will continue to bring much needed change. AND I'm very thankful for slowly having more and more time for Muay Thai again!! :)
What are you thankful for this year?
