Yes, like most folks living in the first world I have much to be thankful for. Perhaps I should make “Thankful Thursday” a regular feature?
I am thankful that I am healthy and ABLE to complete a triathlon if I WANT to. I frequently run on a paved beach trail shared with walkers, other runners and cruiser cyclists. I also share this trail with folks using walkers and wheelchairs and runners who are struggling with obvious injuries. As I pass by these folks I am instantly humbled and motivated.
Undoubtedly, I pass or run around people who WOULD run or swim or bike if they COULD. I can, and I am thankful that I do.
On a lighter note, I am also grateful to whoever invented Nutella.
