This morning I ran the Turkey Trot with my daughter. Just a few months ago, she was confined to a walking boot after surgery on her right foot. Today we ran / walked / ran some more / walked some more our first 5K together — the Turkey Trot on the campus of the University of Alabama Huntsville. I’ve been running this race for years — it’s a great way to burn off some calories before our annual feast. But today was the start of what we hope is a new father-daughter tradition. We agreed that this would be “our thing” together. I’m so proud of this little girl who is growing into a beautiful young woman. I’m looking forward to the day when she’s the one encouraging this old man as he limps to the finish line (see that grey in the beard there! HA!).
Lots to be thankful for tonight. Happy Thanksgiving 2018.
