Thanksgiving Trots and Hearts of Gratitude


Thanksgiving is such a great holiday! It’s a time for thanking our blessings and surrounding ourselves with loved ones. This month I’ve been posting every day on social media something of which I’m grateful. Some of the prompts have seemed silly and others more profound, but the best part of all is that it’s been a good way to stay grounded each day and not to take anything for granted. Easier said than done, right?

To continue the gratitude trend, I thought it would be fun to highlight some fellow turkey trotters and to capture their grateful hearts. Gratitude truly is a practice worth doing everyday!

Wishing all my readers a blessed holiday season. And don’t forget to get your daily dose of fresh air and exercise for a more sane season (as you can see these runners are all smiles).

Please add a comment below on something you are grateful for today!

Dad and I enjoyed our first Turkey Trot 5K in Lewes, DE. I am grateful for him and all my family. When you are part of a blended family on each side, the holidays make for many personalities, travel to different homes and a lot of flexibility. But you can also say quadruple the love and stories to tell. Wouldn’t have it any other way! #blessed

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
