I am very happy today because I have a half day at work before a couple of days off for Thanksgiving! WHOO! I hope you have time off work too!
I’m finally feeling in the holiday spirit! I started my Christmas shopping yesterday and I even put a couple of decorations up around the house.
(We don’t have a tree because we have a cat who is not able to handle a tree! )
I have zero talent when it comes to interior decoration, so I really just put things up wherever it feels right which sometimes doesn’t end up looking right.
Oh well, Adam and I hardly ever have anyone over who can judge us!
Sorry, I’m not sorry that I use Pinterest to find motivational running pictures instead of home decor ideas!
Last night I went for an easy three miler
in the sauna around my hood. Only 91% humidity yesterday, so that’s an improvement over Monday!
Who wants to come join me? Anyone? No takers for running in the sauna?
You have no idea how much I am looking forward to the change in weather that will roll in briefly on Thursday!
As you can see ^ I got caught at the drawbridge again. Damn bridge. Although honestly it was so humid my heart was beating like crazy by the time I got to the top and I was pretty grateful for the mini break. Only one boat had to pass through, so it didn’t take too long.
So, I’ve had a very last minute Thanksgiving change of plans. I won’t be going out of town for the holiday, which means I can sign up for the local Turkey Trot 5K.
I am scheduled to run 5 miles on Thursday, and the start and finish of the race just happen to be about 1.5 miles from my house. That means I can easily get in my full five miles by doing a warmup and cool down jog on my way there and back.
The only reason I am hesitating is that the race fee is now $40 and you don’t even get a tech t-shirt or medal. Hmmmmmm. I run this same route almost every single day of my life for free. Should I pay $40 to run my normal route just because it’s Thanksgiving? That’s a tough one.
Hmmm hmmm hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm …
What’s the most you’ve ever paid for a 5K?
Are you braving the grocery stores today? I am and I’m scared!
