First off, my dad's birthday is tomorrow, hoorah! My dad is a great hardworking man who is many things from my oil change guru to my cocktail instigator. He is a dedicated guy who has come a long way in his life.
However, this day last year had a different tone to it. It is also the anniversary of when I lost a car, and was in my first accident. Yes, this accident happened on my way to my dad's birthday dinner. Need a reminder? Read about it here: http://theoscblog.blogspot.com/2013/11/bus-pants.html
Finally, Thanksgiving is next week. I'm running a 5K called the Turkey Trot in DTLA in the morning with my friends and then joining my family for dinner after. So it looks like I'm doing the whole eating/exercise pattern backwards next Thursday. I've been working out leading up to it and feeling great. Should be a fun experience.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving family and friends and I hope you all have plenty to be thankful for and appreciate it.
