Thankful 13 

I’ve always wanted to do a turkey trot on Thanksgiving, but I typically travel that weekend. Since I stayed in town this year I decided last minute to run the Thankful 13 half marathon. ReNae, JoAnn, and Mike decided to join me.

The weather was amazing. It was pretty sunny most of the time. The mile markers had gratitude quotes and all along the way there were signs of what people are grateful for. 

I was not feeling well at all so I was especially thankful it was a half. I like to keep a pretty decent base mileage so I can decide last minute to do a half. ReNae was so great and stayed with me the whole way. 

San Diablo Churros were at the finish line as well as pumpkin pie and rolls. 

I spent the rest of the day with the Reeds. We had a delicious dinner and then went out shopping. We stayed out until 2:00am. It was so much fun, but I was so exhausted. 

It’s always hard not being with family on holidays, but I am so lucky to have great friends that treat me like family. I went to bed feeling very thankful for all I have. 


  1. This is really nice, the Quote on sign No:7 is really nice. It should be our attitude always towards the people who do even tiny things for us. Thanks for sharing

  2. This is a beautiful and encouraging way to show gratitude
