I can't stand to leave whiny posts up for long. I'm really sick of my whiny-self already. I'm fine. Even though it's been an admittedly crappy, injury filled year as far as running is concerned, I have SO MUCH to be thankful for. I reminded myself of this yesterday when I was having a little pity-party for one as I drove around running last-minute Christmas errands. So, while it's a little early to do any sort of year-end reflection (I'll get to that next week), I did give myself a mental kick yesterday because I am so blessed with fabulous people in my life, which really is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING...right?
I have the best Sherpa-husband ever, two amazing kids, a wonderful family including my awesome parents who are hanging in there, sisters, in-laws, nieces, nephews, all of whom I love.
I have THE HERD, especially my running/biking partners Betty, Elsie, and Mik, who keep me entertained and motivated and who I love as if they were my sisters...which they are.
And, I also have all my blog-buddies, some of whom I've gotten to meet and hang with this year. I mean..how cool is THAT?
Thanks to everyone who left me encouraging words yesterday. I promise to hang in there. I promise to not run and re-injure myself, but I'm with Missy...I do refuse to grow up (much).
So, even though it's raining today (the SoCal equivalent to having a White Christmas), I thought I'd share this. Elsie sent it to me yesterday. Local peeps will enjoy the pix (even though some are a little dated) and Clarence can feel bad that its a EFFING COUNTRY SONG and yet no pix of Lakeside (pffft).
Gotta go bake some Christmas cookies now!
