Tennessee getaway and some cute babies

I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving! We had a few days of warm weather, and it was marvelous!

Over the weekend I escaped to Franklin, TN for a little solo vacay. I haven't traveled to a whole lot of places, but Nashville and Franklin are a couple of my favorite places.
 On Friday I drove around looking for a place to do my long run on Saturday. I found a really nice park, and it was perfect.

 The weather was lovely, and so was my 10 mile run.
My gorgeous sister and brother in law came up from Wisconsin with their adorable babies. I hadn't seen them in over a year, I couldn't believe how much they've grown! I loved meeting their Robert for the first time. They've been fostering him for awhile and are now adopting him. His story is absolutely a miracle.
That fro though!

My sweet Rainor bug
My sis is now pregnant with #3! That means she'll have 3 babies under 2 years old. Man, she's got the life! I told her I'd gladly take one of them for her. :)

Last week was my first week of marathon training, and I finished it with 19 miles. That was my highest weekly mileage in months! It feel soooo good to be back to it!

How was your Thanksgiving?
Did you go Black Friday shopping?
(Once in a lifetime was enough for me!)

    I have been to Tennessee once, its a pretty state, I could go there again for sure:) I'm glad you had a great trip, and wow look at you and your mileage you are really getting back into it, pretty soon it will be like that injury never happened:)
