i'm thankful for...my DVR. shoot, i love this piece of technology. i can't stand watching commercials anymore, i swear. between netflix, hulu and my dvr if i have to watch something live, i'm annoyed. every morning while i eat breakfast i typically watch an episode of good eats or chopped or some other food network delight. soon enough i can watch scandal and revenge because their winter breaks are FINALLY coming to an end. i am super pumped for the return of television.
i'm thankful for...my dad's generosity. even if notre dame didn't do as well as we had hoped (or, you know, well at all), i still am so thankful that i got the chance to go to florida and see the game, and it was all thanks to elvis. he's such a great dude and i'm incredibly lucky to have him in my life.
i'm thankful for...running buddies! because these two treats are training for the rock n' roll half with me and since they both live close by i've gotten the chance to go on lots more runs with friends lately and that makes me really happy. i am excited to go for a run with alex this weekend since we haven't run together in ages. everything is coming together in terms of me getting outside and getting my runs in and that is due mostly in part to having friends to run with. who knew that it would get a lot colder and i would get a lot better about running outside?
i'm thankful for...thumbholes! neon! thick running tights! i love cute workout tank tops as much as (maybe more) than the next girl, but there's nothing better than good cold weather running gear. in a pinch, i can run in the heat wearing a tshirt and shorts, but without solid winter apparel i would never do any runs outside. i think buying running gear and getting it as gifts is probably my favorite thing in the world and my collection of workout apparel at least triples that of my regular wardrobe. not sorry about it, just a fact.
what are you thankful for this week?
