First 5 miles = felt like a rockstar
Second 5 miles= felt like a slug
My mom could watch brooke for approximately 80 minutes and so I really wanted to try and fit in 10 miles. I headed north on a trail and was cruising, I felt like it was so easy and that I was especially cool. I hit 5 miles and turned around and then BOOM I realized I would be running the 5 miles back in a crazy headwind. Turns out that the wind was pushing me big time on the way out and that was why I felt so good, the way home was not the same. Overall a 7:48 pace and the biggest positive split ever.
Running in wind = a very long nap on the couch.
Time to show pictures of our Thanksgiving meal because I am sure you haven’t seen 452 pictures just like this on every other blog created. My mom’s stuffing is the absolute best ever and I will not even argue with you about this issue. I am right.

After dinner we always have some sort of game with killer prizes. I won both competitions- 1. Greasiest bangs competition. 2. Bocci ball competition. My cousin and I were on a team for bocci ball and we won Belgium chocolates.
Have you ever seen anything this beautiful in your entire life?
This strange child chose a scoop of vanilla ice cream instead of any of those beautiful pies. Maybe we aren’t related. She looks rather sad about her decision.
I am a cream pie person and went for the banana, chocolate and german chocolate cream pies along with a little ice cream.
I ended the night by watching Burn Notice with my parents. Pretty perfect day.
Did you run on Thanksgiving? Anyone run in a Turkey Trot? Does running in the wind exhaust you too?
Do you have to work today or do you have the day off?
Best thing you ate on Thanksgiving?
