Thanksgiving Running

Oh Turkey, you are so tasty (In Scrubs Molly sings a song to her Chicken Salad sandwich....very similar tone here....she also says "Kielbasa" with rock star fingers (or maybe the 'I love you' sign.....I don't know...but if you haven't seen the episode it's AWESOME) and Jason and I keep walking up to each other saying that....with the rock star fingers...ok anyways...moving on)

So running....we got a good one in! My Aunt Donna and Uncle Ken live on a lake which has a road which encircles the lake and is 8.5 miles around. When Jason and I are on vacation so is our Garmin and so we just went out for a run on Thanksgiving morning before the feasting began. It was a beautiful run and although we weren't used to the hills we got through them without too many issues. We are going to try and do the same route tomorrow morning putting us at 17 miles and then another 10 on Sunday and WHOA that's 27 for the week. Which is a lot better than I thought we would do this given the away from homeness that was occuring. Next week then we can get back up to over 30 and have one more week to get ready for Sarasota training.

Happy Eating Holiday everyone. I hope everyone out there is thoroughly stuffed and having a great time!

Thanks for all the well wishes on the toe. It's not as bad as I thought it would be and held up fine duing our run on Thursday.

27 miles for the week? Score! that rules. Sounds like things are going well on the running front while you're away.

Want to meet up at the track one night this week?? We're all about speed.
