Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

So many things to be thankful for, not enough words for all the emotions for all the memories. For the sake of brevity I'll just talk about two:

I'm thankful for all the great friends and family in my life. You picked me up when I was down, which was several times this year; blog friends, running friends, tri-club friends, work friends, church friends, everyone. Shout out to my pals Jess, Tonya and Olga. Jess I love how you listen to my misadventures with women and take my side all the time even when I'm wrong. Oh wait I forgot, in the wine bar, I'm never wrong. I remember now. Tonya love our once every two months catch up dinners. Enjoyed the work talk, life except when you get all Dr. Ruth on me. Let's take that down a notch because I realized deep down, it makes me queasy. Olga thanks for all the kind words, all the way from Oregon. Congratulations on your engagement! I better visit Oregon and the "gorge" soon.

And I'm thankful for the health and ability to run. Many people can't run. Many running friends can't run because of some injury or another and several more running injured. Thank you God for running!

Nice face Jess! Friends, my cousin (visiting from Manila) and I, got started early on the Thanksgiving holiday celebration. At Poleng Lounge last night. Good food, good service and great drinks. I'd comeback for the Ceviche alone.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Rick! I hope you're doing well!


  2. Cute picture. Great "thankfuls". See you Saturday -- I'll be at the Stinson Beach aid station. Be safe.

  3. Goog stuff, Rick.....maybe I'll stop by at the start/finish area when you guys hit the halfway point.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well !

  5. Happy (late) Thanksgiving Mr!! Hope it was a good one ;-)

  6. Happy Thanksgiving! (ok, 2 days late but oh well) I hope today's run went brilliantly-- can't wait to hear about it.

  7. Well said, Rick! I hope you had a great holiday weekend.

  8. Meghan: I hope it was a good Thanksgiving for you. Everything is great on this side of California.

    Jo Lynn: Omigosh you and Stan made me laugh. It was great seeing you guys out there. Maybe next time you're running, I'm volunteering.

    Gundy: It was good to see you at the start / finish. Always fun to hang out with the ultra club no?

    Tony: I'm sure it was a good one for you and your family.

    Marcy: I told you Pinoys are always late:) I kid, sort of.

    Victoria: The run went great. Will put a race report and pictures soon.

    Rob: Same to you. I hope it went well for you and your family.
