Happy Turkey Day

I am planning on a 10 miler tomorrow morning with my running group LocoMotion. Isn't it GREAT to be able to burn off a few calories before eating thousands more...

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I thought I should take a minute to talk about the people/things I am thankful for:

*I am thankful for my wonderful husband! He is so supportive of EVERYTHING I do. He is always the first to say, "Sign up for that race." He has never once complained about the time I spend pounding the pavement in those long runs or the waiting at the finish line. He really is the best! Thanks, Lover!

*I am thankful for my kids. They bring so much joy into my life, and I could not even imagine life without them! I am grateful that my family CAN be together forever!

*I am thankful for running. It is such a great stress release, it just makes me feel good.

*I am thankful for good parents, who taught me by example, how people should live to be happy. I love you both!

*I am thankful for all my running/bloggy friends. Even though I haven't met most of you, I feel your support and camaraderie. Thank you!

And I hope you all have a




HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I wish I had a group to run with tomorrow morning. That would be great. Plus get a 10 miler in before Thanksgiving. Definite bonus!

I hope I'm feeling less sore tomorrow so I can go for a pre dinner run! Have a great turkey day!

Great idea to go for a nice run before turkey dinner. Happy Thanksgiving!

I wonder if I run while eating I can eat twice the calories?

NOthing like a 10miler to provide lots of great eating excuses. Well done! Enjoy your holiday...wish we had one here (now and in October :)

Wow! My running group only ran 5 on Thanksgiving morning. I don't think I broke even with calories burned/calories consumed. We should have done 10 like you!

I'm thinking of attempting my first marathon in the spring. With your vast experience, I may be asking you lots and lots of questions!!

I like to think of Thanksgiving as the biggest running day in America!
