Drum Stick

To keep myself motivated to run I have to keep signing up for these runs, otherwise I have no motivation to keep going.  The daylight savings time and cold have not helped my motivation at all.  Nicole and I are not able to run together now so I'm doing it on my own.  Usually as soon as Josh comes home I am out the door trying to fit in a run before our evening activities.  I try to get out and run 3-4 times a week.  

Wheeler Mission puts on a run on Thanksgiving morning to raise money.  About 15,000 other people and myself decided to "move our feet so others could eat."  They have a 4 mile run and a 2.5 miles run.  Today I did the 2.5 mile, I don't feel like I am in good enough shape to run a 4 miler...yet, maybe next year. It was my first time running with this many people.  It was a learning experience.  I felt like the entire time  I was running I was strategizing on how to move around the walkers.  At least it kept my mind off of the actual run, right?  My buddies Nicole and Anna were there to share in the fun too.  After the race I walked down to dad's and met my family for a Thanksgiving lunch.
