Give thanks...

There are SO MANY things I am thankful for this year, I could probably write a post eight pages long... but no one wants to read that do you? I'll save that kind of wordiness for my race reports :)

One of the things I am thankful for this year are the friends I have met through triathlon and blogging. It really is such a great community. I have been fortunate enough this year to meet more than a few of my friends who formerly only lived in my computer - KC, Beth, Summer, Colleen, Meredith - I am looking at all of you! :)

I stepped outside of my routine of training alone and went to training camps and met some great new friends and found new training partners. Now I am looking through my magic mirror and see Sarah, Kristi, Mari, Callie, Trisha, Robbie and Steve. So excited to train with you guys next year!

I am also thankful for each and every one of you! I love reading your blogs and following your training. You are a constant source of inspiration and ideas. For those of you who post such great pictures, I can only hope to be as good as you someday - ha ha! I will take more pictures, I will take more pictures, I will....

I hope you all had a great day. :)

When you meet your creepy blogger friends in real life, they aren't as creepy any more, right? Right? I can't hear you. Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

It is fun meeting blog buddies. I haven't met enough yet that my wife doesn't make a comment about going out with that guy or girl I met on the Internet :-). It sounds creepy enough, she may never stop saying it :-).

Have a great weekends!
