5 Days of Gratitude Giveaways: Day 2

If you missed yesterday’s giveaway, it’s still open!  Be sure to follow along on FacebookTwitter, or subscribe via email so you don’t miss a post!
Today I am grateful for a healthy body and the ability to exercise–to run, jump, and move! Our bodies are amazing, do incredible things, and I’m grateful to have a healthy one.  
I grew up playing a variety of sports, doing ballet, jazz and tap.  I played sports through high school and was fortunate to play volleyball in college. For the last seven years I’ve been an avid runner (or at least trying to be).  One thing I’ve always tried not to take for granted is the strength, health, and ability of my body that has allowed me to do these things.  
I love waking up at the crack of dawn {bundling up now that its freeeeezing!!} and going for a run, it’s the best way for me to start my day.  It’s  just as emotionally healthy for me as it is physically. And let’s be honest…there’s a lot of cookie consumption going on over here….I’ve got to work it off:)
