I don't do this too often, so I thought today being such an important day in my heritage (just kidding I have no idea what St. Patrick's Day celebrates but I'm Irish and Scottish so I pretend it is important) I thought I would write down a few things I am grateful for. Thanks Lucky Charms.
*My Ipod shuffle- I remember running my first half with my Ipod classic and how the arm band straight rubbed me raw...it hurt. I am glad in our society we are constantly trying to make things smaller. (I'm leaving this one wide open.)
*The Provo/Jordan River trail- Yesterday I was supposed to run 6 miles. The thought of running 6 miles on a tredmill made me sick to my stomach. Thanks to this trail, I didn't have to!
*My Ironman Triathalon watch- I still have to work out the kinks but for the most part, you keep me from whimping out on my runs. Thanks for measuring my steps.
*The teenage kids who wrote on the trail- I was getting pretty tired on the last mile back to my house, but I was entertained as I ran by nice little notes in chalk on the trail. They said things like, 'You are fat.' and 'Giving up is for skinny people.' Genius.
*Honky Tonk Ba Donka Donk- Say what you want about this song, but when you are running, it is a good pump up. Trust me. Who wants to be known as the girl with the honky tonk ba donka donk? Not me.
*A little brother on a mission- I had to throw this one in here because I think about him every day and I am so grateful he is on a mission. I can't wait till he gets out of the MTC though so that my urge to just walk up there and see him will be unwarrented. I live a block away. Its ridiculous.
Happy St. Patty's to you all.
