Ahhhhh, Thanksgiving!!!!! Of course, I am thankful for all my blessings in life and my family, but honestly, the one thing I look forward to is the above pictured sweet potato casserole!!!!! It is sooooooo GOOD, but oh sooooooo bad for you!!!! And, this year, this casserole almost didn't come to be.... why? Well, earlier this week, I got word that my sister-in-law and brother-in-law would be out of town for Thanksgiving.... Annnddd, she is the one that makes this!!!! Instantly, I was bummed out! But then, I texted her..... and in a oh so threatening way, demanded the recipe!!! Ok, not really, but I did express my disappointment and she graciously gave me the recipe! So, the above picture is my very first ever effort to make the dish I so love!!!! By the looks of it, it should be yummy, but I will let you know after I taste it! LOL!!! :D
At the crack of dawn, I rolled out of bed and put on my turkey compression socks!!!!! I was positive that these theme socks were going to put a little more pep in my step.... after all, turkeys really do run FAST!!!!
The above picture is of me (in the middle) and two of my running friends! It is tradition that we always snap a pic prior to any 5K!!! And, we always carefully select a random stranger to take our picture!! LOL! :D
Ok, I just look like a HOT MESS in the above picture! I am really thinking I need to evaluate my friend status with my running friends.... LOL... I mean, do friends let friends take pictures looking like this?!?! My hair!!! OUT OF CONTROL!!!! LOL!!!! :D
None-the-less, this is a picture of my co-worker (Nurse Practitioner) and I..... she always looks so together and me, well, as in this picture, A hot mess! She and I both placed in our age groups!! YAY!! Also, I pushed at the end to get a PR!!!!!! Awaiting official times because as usual I forgot to turn off my garmin! UGH! Will I ever get in the habit?!?! But I know I got a PR! So, the HOT MESS hair was worth the bad photo! LOL!
I received the above ornament for an award for 2nd in my age group! Pretty festive cool award!!! Especially since the Christmas tree will be going up soon!
The break down of the 3 miles as per my Garmin is as follows:
Mile 2- 8:20
This is just a pic I saw on Facebook..... this chick knows how to take full advantage of her running belt... wish I had seen this a couple weeks back... remember me telling you I lost my cute pink gloves because I placed them on a water/fuel table that I thought I would be running pass again?!? Why couldn't I had been as clever and tucked them in my belt?!?! At least I know now!
Gotta run! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! UNTIL LATER!!!!
Did you run a race today?
PR worth a hot mess hair in a picture?
How do people look put together after a race?! Is there a secret glam squad?!?? Please tell!!!!!
