A Very Merry Thanksgiving!


Thursday: Eat & Rest <— I gave thanks for a day off!

Friday: 8.5m easy 8:13/pace 

Happy Thanksgiving!


My pumpkin pie w/almond flour crust came out perfectly!


Yesterday’s run was beautiful! It was cold out, but sunny which always helps it feel warmer than it is. I tried to make sure I didn’t start out too fast and kept my pace moderately even. For me to slow down I have to either run without music or make smart music decisions that are a little slower paced. Yesterday I listened to The Decemberists (perfect for this time of year!) & The Oh Hellos. Listening to the albums straight through also keeps my legs running calm and steady.


All bundled up and ready to run! I got that warm headband from Target’s C9 collection for $13. It was worth it for sure.

Last night I watched The Deathly Hallows: Part 1. I’ve been watching Harry Potter all the way through over the last month or so and i’m finally down to the last part 2! I miss having a Potter film to look forward to around Thanksgiving, brings back so many memories! I try and watch the Harry Potter movies around Thanksgiving or Christmas 🙂

What are some of your traditions?

Anyone do a Turkey Trot?

  1. Looks like you had a wonderful time!

    No Turkey Trot for me – it was a day off from running because everyone was home, and my wife has to work all weekend. So we had a fantastic relaxing day together.

    We have a very traditional Thanksgiving, but pumpkin spice scones with caramel sauce for breakfast has become a tradition. To my (happy) surprise, the boys are very much into the traditions for Christmas.

    • that sounds amazing. anything “pumpkin” is welcome for a new tradition in this household!

      • The recipe is our own (ok, my wife and younger son) variant on one from the ‘Alice’s Tea Cup’ book – if you like to bake things like scones, definitely check it out. I have yet to find a recipe that wasn’t easy and delicious.

        And looking at those pics brings me back … well, about 25 years 🙂 Those pre-marriage days do matter in many ways (not that things can’t / won’t change later), but going through all of it together is ultimately what is most important!
