Happy Thaksgiving to All

The title says it all, and a recent newspaper column just addressed the importance of an attitude of gratitude in one's mental, emotional, and physical health.

Happy Thanksgiving, 50+ers -- dawn has broken, and I am off for my traditional T-day ride -- combined age of rider (1950 model) and bike (1959 model) is about 120 years.

My thanks to everyone here, the support and encouragement I've received from the folks here is amazing. I hope that all of you have a great Thanksgiving, and to our brothers and sisters on Canada, England/UK and other locales, thanks to you also. Ride as much as you can.

I'm planning on a little ride this morning, too, but my combined years of rider,(1954 model) and bike (2010 model) is slightly less than yours.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Our gym is open from 5 am to 1 pm, so we're off for some fun Stepmill work and weights. Then I have to clean house. Thankful for still being able to do it.

Among the very many things I am thankful for, I am thankful for all the great info/motivation from folks on this forum. Since it's only 8 degrees out and slippery, no riding for me today and my gym is closed. That's okay as I can use a day off. Very excited to see my son and his fiance later today, haven't seen them since April.
And, mucho thankful that in less than a week we should be in sunny Clearwater FL and able to ride bike, run-walk the beach etc. as much as I want for the next 5-6 months! Happy Thanksgiving and Peace to all!

I am thankful for this knee brace without which, I walk with a very painful limp.

I am thankful I don't need it for cycling.
I am thankful for 188 rides and 5,530 miles so far this year, all ridden rubber side down.
