|The starting line at this morning’s Applied Materials
Silicon Valley Turkey Trot
As we spend today giving thanks for all the important things in our lives, let me share a few things I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for great moments with my kids, like last evening’s walk where I discussed plate tectonics with my 11-year old daughter who seemed genuinely interested as my autistic son gleefully swatted away flies that would have frightened him only a few months ago. I’m thankful for Turkey Trots, like the Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot I ran this morning. These are always great races since everyone is in a festive holiday mood. After a bit of a downer half-marathon in Monterey, I bounced back to run a pretty good 10k if I say so myself. I’m also thankful for my great wife who also ran a great 10k for herself wearing a tutu, reminding me not to take life so seriously.
Here’s hoping you all have plenty to be thankful for, and I wish you all the best for Thanksgiving!
