Thanksgiving - a rare day off for me! I'm very thankful to be working for an employer who, thankfully, doesn't believe it working on holidays. I know this makes me in the minority of many of the people I know these days. This morning I ran a 10K out in Knoxville before coming home to rest and then stuff my face with delicious food.
I have so much to be thankful for this year, including making a move back to Tennessee to be near my friends and family and scoring an AMAZING job where I am sharing my passions of backpacking and teaching principles I truly believe in to novice hikers. To say that I have been extremely lucky this year is an understatement.
To all of my readers out there, I am most thankful for you. This year has seen amazing changes to the blog, my writing, my hiking, and even won me an award and some nominations for best outdoor blog on several websites. I cannot wait to continue onward in 2016 and continue to grown and write quality content for all of you. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and have a chance to get outside and enjoy some fresh air, even if it's only for a minute!
