My MIL just had surgery a few days ago, so this was a very low key Thanksgiving!
Yesterday morning I got to run with the darling Dawn again! We did a 5 mile Turkey Trot. It was 17 degrees, so it was bitter cold. I wore 2 shirts, a jacket, leggings, shorts, hat, gloves and earmuffs. Once I started running, I wasn't cold at all! Funny how that happens. I actually started wishing I had only worn 1 shirt, instead of 2.

This was an awesome race. Of course Iroquois Park is known for its crazy hills, and there were a lot of them! After most races, a lot of them just have water and bananas. But this one had tons of food! Hot cider (which was sooo good), chocolate milk, cups of trail mix, huge muffins, oranges and bananas. It was great!
My 100 mile training buddy Mark, ran the race too. He did GREAT. Super proud of him!
Dawn is coming back to Louisville in January, and we're going to find a 5k to do, and she's going to get me to the sub 30 that I can't seem to get. I can't wait!
This was a great race and I'm glad I got to run it with some amazing friends!
I also want to say I am so incredibly thankful for all of you. Thank you more than I can say for your emails and messages and words of encouragement during this time that I'm going through. You all are a huge blessing in my life.
Did you run or do a Turkey Trot? Tell me about it!
How many Thanksgivings do you go to?
