On Thanksgiving morning, Wes, Mike, and I ran a 5K race, the Turkey Trot. We had wanted to do it for a while but have always been gone, so this was a fun opportunity. Wes ran with me the whole way and we did it in 26:30. I was psyched! That's only just over 2 minutes slower than normal, and I had expected to do more like 33:00. Mike took 6th place of about 300 people. It was great to get a little endorphin rush and calorie burn in before the feast. 13 folks showed up for dinner--it was my first time hosting, so mom walked me through all of the cooking and it was delicious! We ate, talked, played Taboo, ate pie, laughed, hung out. Here are some photos of our time together.
The Thanksgiving feast--turkey, stuffing, grean bean casserole, mashed taters, sweet potatoes, gravy, cornbread, cranberry sauce, apple pie and pecan pie. Mike lifted up my shirt to show the belly just as the photo was taken.
We took a day off of working for a beautiful hike up Grizzly Creek. We hiked through fog and mist for hours.
21 weeks! Wes and I comparing bellies. Similar genes?? (It's really not fair, he does about 10 situps a year.)
