Starting The Morning Off Right!

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times.  There is no better way to start off the glutenous feast that is Thanksgiving than a great morning run!  As I ran the race, I found myself pondering all the wonderful things and, more importantly, people I have been blessed with this year.

My sister-in-law and niece did the Anthem Turkey Trot with me this year.  If I may brag just a bit, I did get 8th place in my age group and 38th overall.  Wahoo!  It wasn’t a huge race, but I will take what I can get.  Ready for the awesome news?!  I wasn’t even pushing myself(This is NOT something to brag about, I know).  They didn’t have anyone along the course to let us know how far we had gone.  I kept thinking I had a long way to go.  I had no idea where I was until I turned a corner and heard some guy tell us there was a quarter mile to go and that is when I realized I had been running way too slow the whole time.  I made a mad dash for the finish and the rest is history.  A big shout out to Michelle for running with me to prep.  I managed to shave a minute and a half off my mile pace.

Ladies, thank-you for a wonderful morning!!
