This is a time when we start saying thanks for many things though out the year and start new traditions. This Thanksgiving, I could not be with family because my family situation has change. Today, I ran the Maudslay Turkey Trot with my runners/triathletes and 1500+ friends. I had fun even though we had to walk a couple times do congestion on the trails. Kim R and I had a good conversation though out the run which made it go fast. I had enough energy to give a good kick up the hill to the finish. Today is not about my race time but to be in the presence of now. Soon I will head to cousins for diner. I see today as a start to my new traditions with friends, family and to all my star runners and triathletes. My gratitude is to all of them.
