A new purse, a new PR, and reflections.
I'm apparently also getting better at running- I ran my fastest 10K ever in 47:57!!! I was worried about having forgotten my watch, iPod, and road ID. I ran by feel, and felt awesome through the whole thing, and was ecstatic when I rounded the final curve and saw I was going to make it under 48 minutes. If I hadn't been cheap when we registered, and had paid for the chip timing to be eligible for prizes, I would have won 2nd place and a small prize! Next, year, I want to win that coveted Turkey Stampede gravy boat... :)
I credit the Tough Mudder with my amazing 10K finish, and with my recent phase of super-productivity.
I feel like I'm more focused in all regions of my life. Running, crafting, my relationship, even. I made my husband a personal Thanksgiving meal yesterday- turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes- because it's the least I can do for a man who never ceases to amaze me.
I am thankful for everything I have, for my family, my husband, our dogs, our house, our lives. As the year winds down, I can look back and be amazed by everything we have accomplished. Next year promises to be just as awesome, if not better.
