10 glorious miles with Bangs Friend. I love running with her because we have very serious conversation and also very strange/funny talks while running and we don’t really even pay attention to the running part of what we are doing. I like not taking running so seriously every now and then.
The trail I ran on every day for a year:
After our run I went to the gym for some planks and 20 minutes of strength training (aka I don’t know what to do with myself when Brookers is gone so I fill my time with planks).
And then it was over to my Aunt and Uncle’s house to Skype with Mer (the coolest grandma on the planet).
After the Skype date I went to the movies with my cousins. Going to the movies is one of my favorite things. Popcorn, no cell phones, relaxation and becoming very invested in the story you are watching… makes for a good time.
Don’t tell Brooke but I hung out with one of her best friends yesterday without her.
I am quite sure that you know exactly what a plate of Thanksgiving food looks like (although, I do have to say that my mom’s stuffing was once again out of this world) so let’s talk about dessert instead.
My cousin’s birthday (the last time I saw him was when I was in NYC to run the marathon a few years ago) was yesterday so we had birthday cake and pie to celebrate. That is something to be very thankful about.
My sampler plate. My dad is allergic to eggs and so he has never had pumpkin pie before. My aunt bought a vegan pumpkin pie so that he could eat it! It was his first taste of pumpkin pie and he loved it!
And we finished things off with a very serious ping pong tournament that went well into the night.
A great time with family and Bangs Friend made Thanksgiving 2013 as good as it could have been given the circumstances!
I hope you had an amazing day!
Are you allergic to anything? What?
Best thing that you ate yesterday?
What was your Thanksgiving run? Who raced?
