Our family spent the day playing Wii and being together before
we drove to Gramma's house for a big Thanksgiving day evening meal.
After a bit of overindulgence, we played more games and then went out to see the
crazies who lined up by the hundreds at the local stores.
All this for more "stuff." No Thanks!
Hubbs and I toyed with the idea of selling coffee and hot chocolate but the rain and cold
encouraged us to come to our senses and get the kiddos and head home.
Day # 201 ~ 5 miles
We did find our way to a store. Sams Club for groceries and then we roamed around
while Hubbs was distracted by the flashing electronics.
Day # 202 ~ 10 miles
S'ghetti girl and I worked on headbands for our school districts Holiday Workshop. S'ghetti girl was most excited about her fashion sparkle headbands. I think she would cover herself in glitter if she could.
Day 203 ~ 1 extra mile with S'ghetti girl and her new mile PR
On the running front, my streak continues. Day 200 happend to fall on Thanksgiving day.
I thought that was an nice coincidence since I count the ability to run among my blessings.
S'ghetti girl has been working on being more active and broadening her diet.
She went out with me on Sunday to work on her mile. I was so proud of her effort.
As we ran she told me, "...it's not about how fast I go. All that matters is that I finish."
Day # 203 ~ 6.5 miles solo
I may not have taught her to love running (yet) and I am fine with whatever she chooses
to love doing to be active but what makes me so happy for her is her attitude.
And over a lifetime, that is what will help her the most; having the right attitude.
