Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the annual Run for Your Hart 5k. My sister-in-law organized this event 10 years ago, and no matter where we are on Thanksgiving day, we run a 5k. We get a t-shirt to prove it. This has become one of my favorite things to do. It's probably the only time I run outside past October and don't complain about how cold it is. When I'm running with my siblings and family, I don't seem to notice how cold it usually is.
This year did not disappoint. Despite planning the wedding and reception of their daughter, my brother and sister-in-law, know how to throw a fantastic 5k party. This year, with the t-shirts, there were additional prizes! I just love a prize.
After the run, we all ate a well deserved meal. And pie. And stuff. You know, it's Thanksgiving, eating is what we do.
I love how this holiday kicks off the season with gratitude and humility. I have been reminded of all of the many blessings I have in my life. I really am so thankful.
