Weather: 24 degrees Again
This was the fourth day in a row of sub-freezing workouts. The cold weather kept many people away even though a new year is upon us. Few were present, but good work was done. With No Help running, that left only 5 of us, which made it difficult to wait for the 6!

Devo – Gratitude (with apologies to Training Wheels for repeat from yesterday)
YHC is not big on new year’s resolutions, but my focus word for this year is Gratitude. There are several podcasts on my regular playlist, and several of them have already been talking about gratitude in various ways.
We are all blessed in many ways, but we usually take the blessings for granted and focus on problems or deficiencies. It was 24 degrees (again) today, but there was no rain. We were all healthy enough to enjoy a run together.
