whAt i did pRe-thANksgiviNg eAtiNg

just gotta post this because i was so proud of myself. On thankgsgiving morning, I got myself up at the crack of dawn to participate in this...
WHAT A GREAT WAY TO SPEND THANKSGIVING MORNING! it was gorgeous out! i ran around oceanside and ended up running the last leg of the 5K on the beach. this is definitely something i will do again and again.
the best part is that i ran the whole thing. there was a day when this would have been no big deal for me, but anyone who knows my anaphylaxis stories and how i haven't ran more than 2 miles at a time since then will understand. i fully intended to walk it. i was just excited to be up and about at the beach on such a glorious day. right before it started, i decided "i'm going to run this. the whole thing." so i moved up to the running section. no, it wasn't my fastest run ever. and no, it wasn't really that long of a run. but i was SO proud of myself. there was a moment when i thought i wouldn't be able to do it, but then this lady i passed had a shirt on with the scripture on the back "i can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." yeah, that's a paraphrase. but it reminded me that i can! so i kept running despite all of the fears rushing through my head, and even picked up the pace for the last mile. as i sprinted through the finish line, i totally cried. yup. i did. i was so proud of myself and SO grateful for a body that is stronger than i give it credit for.

So here's to being grateful for all that we are and pushing past the walls that hold us back from all that we can be.

hAppy NovembeR

probably my favorite halloween in a long time. :) we went trunk or treating with jordy and instead of taking candy...everyone takes candy... we made home-made root beer. it was DELICIOUS and we had lots of fun. dave blowing frame dressed up as "glenn 40 years ago"...
after trunk or treating, we went to the boshards for some real door knocking.
jordy with becca and dylan
and the back of jordy's hair...just because it was super cool!
hope everyone had a great night! this has been such a great month! what a way to end it! :)
