First, a huge thanks to Gracie, at How I Complicated My Life Today for sharing information about the Rock 'n' Roll NOLA race discount.* Thanks to the New Orleans Saints for winning last Sunday's game by 55 points, and thanks to the Colts for... well... for not showing up to that game.
Total race savings for two entries: $110.
Who said blogging doesn't pay?
And who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?
Second, Hubby is an October baby. I normally don't get all mushy about him on the blog, but birthday month is an acceptable exception. He is smart, kind, thoughtful, and one helluva fast runner. (He makes a pretty good running buddy, too. I had to get faster just to try to keep up!)
Since I met Hubby, I regularly feel like I won the lottery.
Happy Birthday Honey!
And last, but not least, after last weekend's hip incident, I send my thanks to SUAR for a reminder that a crappy run does not have to be crappy:
"I mean, really. Even if you are puking or being carried off in as stretcher with a broken leg, how can you not appreciate the beauty around you? Being grateful for these gifts takes the edge off of our own personal crises. Sometimes we just need to get over ourselves and our drama."So in that spirit, I've got plenty to be thankful for!
What are you thankful for right now?
*Note: The discount is still in effect for any Saints victory, but apparently the Competitor Group doesn't want to lose $385,000 again (7,000 entries x $55 discount each!), so they've capped the discount to three touchdowns. Still
*correction issued. The cap is $14, even if they win by 3 touchdowns.
