By tracking my days this way (writing every Monday) I realize how quickly time is flying by. I feel like I just wrote my blog entry from last week about my giveaway (Side note: Congrats to the winners again! @TeamRunner4Life, Aeisha Ellen & Charlissia, @MGAlexandra1213, @VivalaRia, and @emmaverick23) and already I'm back writing out what is my life all over again.
This has been a rough week but not in the same stressful way that was my life two weeks ago, instead it's pertaining to training. My coach has been laying that hammer down on us!! All of us athletes know the importance of base training and how imperative it is to the success of your season but I mean DAMN!! lol We had A LOT of 300s today and its safe to say I'm pooped out. I literally came home from practice, got in the shower and laid on my bed for close to 2 hours in and out of sleep in a semi comatose state. If it weren't for my stomach feeling like it was eating itself I probably would still be lying there wallowing in my post-practice soreness. Yes I'm pouring on the dramatics lol but it really has been that kind of week between our weight room sessions in the morning and afternoon runs on the hill or grass, I AM TIREDDD, good tired. Butttttt enough about track!
Something fun and exciting will be coming up in the next couple weeks and I can not wait until then to talk about it so I'll start now... THANKSGIVING!! As soon as November rolls around I immediately start thinking about that last Thursday of the month and all the joy it brings for me.
I know that in a lot of households Christmas is the merry time of year where the family comes together to celebrate their love for each other through time and gifts but for my family Thanksgiving is that big holiday. Mostly because I grew up in a household where we didn't celebrate Christmas so Thanksgiving was the forefront holiday that our whole family came together and when I say whole family I mean WHOLE family! Its our mini family reunion of sorts every year us rotating between the 4 major locations that most of my family (paternal side) lives: Chicago, Delaware, Virginia and Georgia. This year being Delaware! I can't say I'm that excited about going up North with the brutally cold weather right around the corner but I am thrilled to see family. But with this year's excitement comes a little nervousness lol. I'm a very picky and private person especially when it comes to relationships but this year I decided to bring my boyfriend along to the Thanksgiving festivities, a huge first for me! Yes, yes one small step for mankind but one very LARGE step for Queen Harrison. I'm not embarrassed about being in a relationship nor trying to hide it but it definitely has a way of upping the antes when you decide to bring a +1 to any family function. Y'all know how aunties and cousins can be, asking all the cliche first meeting questions, "Who's he?", "How long y'all been dating?", "Y'all doing it?" lol OK maybe not the last one but in my overly analyzing brain I'm a bit nervous of what types of things may come out the mouths of my family members, both while I'm listening to them and while I'm out of earshot. BUT there are certain things you can't control and with that being one I'm choosing to not try to. Instead I'll just look forward to the fun, food, and family time!!
Who else is excited for Thanksgiving?? Tell me! Also let me know about and how you handled your first time including a significant other into family only events :) I love to hear from you all.
Like always thanks for reading and until next time...
