Greetings from Dallas, Texas!! Today kicks off the start of my "10 Days of Thanksgiving" post series. Each year, I spend the 10 days leading up to Thanksgiving giving thanks for things, both big and small, that I am thankful for. In years past, others have joined along, so feel free to join in the fun! I know I have a tendency to overlook the things in my life that I have and focus on what I am working towards, so I love the holiday of Thanksgiving as it forces me to really think about what I am thankful for!
Today I am thankful for the nice ride bike sharing program as it significantly decreases my need to drive.
Oh how I love the bike share program. You all know that, of course, as I have talked about it several times, but I figured it was a good place to start as it is something that I utilize every day from mid-April to early November. I have put so many miles on those bikes, it's pretty amazing! I definitely drive far less as a result as it's often quicker to bike places than drive when you factor in parking.
They put the bikes away last week, and I was so sad to see them go! Now I will do far more walking to get places, which is still a better solution than driving!
Thanks to those bikes, I've saved gas money, reduced the wear and tear on my vehicle, and have burned lots of calories!
What is one thing you are thankful for today?
