Every minute spent with any or all of them is time WELL spent.
Here is hoping that all of you out there had a wonderful THANKSGIVING Day Holiday.
For my 13th year in a row I got to participate in Cincinnati's Thanksgiving Day Race and race as fast as I could for 10K. I am very pleased with my effort as I was able to clock my second best time ever at 42:17.
I am even more pleased because I was able to pull off that time less than a week after doing the Hot Chocolate 15K Race here in Columbus. This hot chocolate was sweet in many levels. I got to run it from start to finish with My Lovely Wife and in the process while wearing the Clot Buster polka-dots got to meet a blood clot survivor who was lining up right behind us to take on his very own 15K after going through his clotting incident.
Needless to say I was more than inspired. I have no doubt that I will see that individual at the races again and this time I will be sure to remember his name... I am so bad with names the first time I learn them.
Here we are racing towards that sweet chocolate treat... and let me tell you that dipping that finish line banana on that melted chocolate goodness was the perfect end to an amazing racing experience.
Now, I just sit here eating my beloved danish butter cookies wondering about 2013 and all the fun things I can potentially do while spreading the word about blood clots and blood clotting disorders.
Please don't mind the crumbs on the keyboard...
Thanks for reading,
The Clot Buster
