I’ve had a little project going for the last few weeks: The Thank You Jar Project. As I’ve thought of someone to thank, I’ve popped their name on a piece of paper and popped it in a jar. I’m going to draw each name out now and say some thank yous – in no particular order other than the randomness of the shake of a jar, here are some thank yous to people who have helped, supported and clapped and cheered my running in 2016.
Mum and Dad
Thanks for your texts and coming to see me at my first Tri. Always positive and always believing. Thank you.
Thank you for your lovely words of support. It’s been a tough year for you but you always have something positive to say and I have appreciated that very much.
While not huge fans of running (understatement), my kids have said all the right things when I’ve told them what I’ve been up to. I even received texts of congratulations after Gold Coast Marathon! I hope I am an example to them of how to grow old in a young sort of way.
What can I say? Always positive no matter what. Keeper of secrets both serious and funny. Thank you is just not adequate.
So many lovely words of encouragement and such a great blog you write. Thank you Jo! And you do look wonderful in a cow costume!
Coach Craig and Tina
So much support, so much encouragement as well as the nuts and bolts of how to get to that finish line. Thank you!
Lovely Shaz, all the way in England but a friend like she is just around the corner. For all the messages of support and encouragement and kindness. Thank you.
For your encouraging messages and words of support. Always appreciated, thank you.
Sam you inspire me constantly. When the going gets tough I think of you and the mountains you have climbed in your training and in your recovery. Thank you so much for being there.
I love your blog, you keep it so real and inspire me so much. Thank you for your support and encouragement this year.
It’s all your fault I am a runner! What a year we’ve had. Here’s to a happy 2017 and making more happy running memories.
A member of the wonderful Canadian Cheer Squad. Thank you so much for your encouragement and support in 2016.
So many lovely words of encouragement. Thank you Lovely Megan! I hope our paths cross again soon, hopefully in 2017.
For lending those bikes and encouraging us to get into triathlon, I’ll be forever thankful. It was just what we needed!
What can I say? For being there and always being smiley with words of wisdom. Thank you. Here’s to more happy running memories in 2017!
I truly do think you are one of life’s angels. Thank you for all the kind and loving words. Thank you for telling your story and keeping things real. You inspire me with every post.
Thank you Sue. Always something wonderful to say; words that inspire and lift up. The other part of the Canadian Cheer Squad and someone who I call a friend. Thank you Sue!!!
The Running Group
Lucky last out of the jar. A wonderful group of people, so much fun to run with. Always ready to celebrate success and to support when times are tough.
And there are many others too who I am sure I should say thank you to. People who have said just the right word at the right time. The Masseuse, Osteo and Physio who have treated my sore knee. The PTs at LA Fit gym. The people at the Tri Club who have offered words of wisdom and advice. When it comes to running, positive people who lift up far outweigh the negative element. To readers who have stopped by and read or commented, thank you. I hope my 2016 ramblings have lifted you up.
Happy running 🙂
