Did everyone have a wicked time over the Halloween weekend? I personally had a riot. Got in some bowling with pals (I was awful), managed a tough/hilly 12-miler and took part in a friendly Chili Cook-Off competition. The perfect type of busy weekend. And we finally carved our pumpkin.
Today somewhat officially kicks off another holiday season, although if you know me I’ve been listening to Christmas music since mid October. AccuRadio Holidays, many cheerful stations to choose from.
It’s November, which correlates into the month of giving – for us Americans at least. I have many things to be thankful for, especially as November marks the one-year anniversary of my first half-marathon. With the yearly hustle and bustle, time to slow down and be thankful. I plan to give thanks throughout the month. Julie over at Savvy Eats has me hooked on a brilliant idea:
25 Days of the Little Things: Using some scrap paper, cut out 25 slips. You can number each one and collect them in a jar or basket. Starting today, write one Little Thing that you are thankful for on the back of the corresponding slip. And come Thanksgiving, you will have at least 25 Little Things to be grateful for. You could write things down, tweet, etc. Doesn’t have to be fancy!
I am planning on making a “Giving Chain,” and threading all the things I am thankful for together and sharing with my nanny at Thanksgiving. Old people eat that stuff up! I am sure the dudes are rolling their eyes, but let me have my girly moment of craftiness.
I should be thankful for all the magical support around our Disney Half Marathon announcement. Thank y’all! What’s the one thing you are thankful for today?
