In the spirit of the holiday, I thought I'd write a special post about what I'm most thankful for.
I'm thankful for my amazing parents, and Adam's, who drove up to visit us on my favorite holiday! We get to eat, drink, and be merry all weekend.
I am thankful for a caring (and good looking) boyfriend who loves me, teases me, and comforts me day-in and day-out!
I am thankful for an incredible advisor, Tammy Donahue, who does countless things to make my grad-schooling less of a sufferfest. She seriously rocks.
I am thankful for the education I've been afforded and the challenges that others have battled in order for me to be where I am today.
I am thankful for a healthy body, a healthy mind, and a healthy cat.
I am thankful for my 2009 sponsors: Honey Stinger, Nuun, Brooks Running Company, and TriggerPoint Therapy, which- without them- I'd have been stomach-achy-and-sore and would probably not have raced as well as I did.
I am thankful for my newest sponsor, Team Trakkers, for bringing me on and giving me a real shot at the world of triathlon. I look forward to meeting new teammates, racing east of the Mississippi, and for seeing what 2010 will bring.
