On my third day of Athletic Xmas Gratitude, I am thankful for- racing!
And what a day to be grateful for racing given it’s the first skimo race of the season.
Yes- I am thankful to have the resources to race. My body is healthy and strong. I have the financial resources to purchase running shoes or the copious amounts of skimo gear. I truly am blessed.
Racing has brought me such great joy. It has built in my confidence, skill, and fitness. I have made many amazing friends. I have learned so many things about myself and pushed myself beyond what I thought possible.
Thank you racing for being a part of my life!
