My 14 yr. old son and I both ran the 10K at our Thanksgiving run. It was his first 10K. Even my immediate family feel I'm obsessed with running, but they are very supportive.

It's really great to hear that I won't be the only one. I started to get filled with anxiety because outside family members (not my own husband and children) are telling me I am taking my running too far and that I am too obsessed, etc, etc. I feel much better.

Yes, I'll be running. I'll probably just go for a run on my own though, and not run in a race.

Respect life.

An attitude of gratitude can wipe away bad thoughts anytime.

I'm planning to run on Thanksgiving Day because I have been running on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday for five weeks now and I don't want to break my streak. Normally I'd run at the gym on Thursday but the gym will be closed so I'll run outside.

I'll plan on it, unless the weather is horrible, because the gym is closed that day.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

Are you going for a run on Thanks giving?

I am. It will take some stress off me and also allow me to feel thankful that I ran when I am serving myself at mealtime. emoticon
