Thankful for at Thanksgiving Time Kelowna Bound

Today's cold and rain pulled my thinking in a direction that I really shouldn’t be heading to yet in one way, but late in heading to in another way.

I began thinking about Thanksgiving Time, the October long weekend, when cool and crisp can fill the Calgary air. It can be a beautiful time of year! It’s a long weekend that I don’t want to just past by and have nothing to show for it. I want to have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend.

I want to be thankful for my health and fitness which allows me to do the things I love. I want to be thankful I can finish a race upright with a smile on my face! I don’t mean to rush summer, but yet, I didn’t want to be left high and dry! It’s about planning, organizing, anticipation!

Sooo......I entered the BMO Okanagan Half Marathon in Kelowna on October 12th. YES! I’m going to Kelowna! I have my plane ticket (decent deal on that), I booked a room (all the good ones are taken because I left this a little late), my name is on the confirmation list!

I spent a day in Kelowna 8 years ago, but don’t remember much. I have not run there so this will be a new experience.

The countdown is on!
