Turkey Trot to Fight MS

I had set my alarm for 5:45 this morning but I was awake long before that. I was SO excited to get down to Raleigh and give Multiple Sclerosis a swift kick in the pants along with a bunch of other health-minded people. 

It was so much fun to see all the kids running with their parents. 

And yes, I got passed by dads pushing baby carriages!

But it was all for a good cause. 

Not that anybody is interested, but I finished in 1,275th place out of 1,809 finishers and 6th out of 15 in my age group (= men born in the Paleozoic Era). 

Up next:

  • Animal care
  • Nap
  • Turkey dinner
  • Football

I know I say this all the time, but having an attitude of gratitude can change your perspective in a nanosecond. Be thankful for all of it. In that moment when you think you can't take another step, whisper "Thank you."
