Saturday (after “failing” my race as my mother so delicately put it) I learned that my brother-in-law successfully navigated the San Fransisco Bay to complete the Escape from Alcatraz relay event. He and a buddy flew out there to compete – he swam the frigid 1.5 miles and his buddy completed the 7 mile run.
My sister calls our racing (and our dad’s devotion to being a high school football referee) “dumb assery” but I feel blessed to have a BIL who understands my love of racing and supports me every step of the way.
I know I’ve used this one before, but I’m always thankful for a Sunday afternoon nap when I have the chance to get one. This particular nap lasted for 3 1/2 hours. I woke up at 7PM, yet was still tired enough to be in bed asleep by 11PM. I definitely needed some extra rest!
After Saturday’s triathlon debacle, it felt nice to hop on that spin bike and power through a 400+ calorie burn.
Jay rarely wants to go to the movies (a waste of money he says) so I am thankful when he find a movie he deems worth of watching in the theater. He chose The Campaign – a little on the vulgar side, but definitely had a few good chuckles.
I’m dealing with allergies or a cold and my throat is raw and sore. A yummy coffee creamer makes even the sludge the serve at work drinkable.
What have you been thankful for this past week?
