Nice little shakeout before tomorrows 10 miler. Weather is warming up and it felt so good to be outside. I love my treadmill but nothing compares to God’s country and fresh air!10 mile long run today. Not my best time for the distance but I spend the whole time dodging puddles on the sidewalks. Felt more like an obstacle course.Today I challenge you to see the good, even if its in something small.
Practicing gratitude makes such a difference in having a happy mindset.
Itâ€™s amazing how something so small can help to shift your mindset.
So, What are you thankful for?
