Happy Tofurkey Day Everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving! May you enjoy lots of carbohydrates and pie. Just wanted to write a quick post before I begin my 3rd round of eats. Oh the joys of Thanksgiving Brunch!

Our day started out, like many of you, with an early morning Turkey Trot. My in-laws are from a cute little town in western Connecticut, so it took us approximately 5 minutes to get to the start line.




















The temperature was in the low 30's but the wind frozen your face off within 10 seconds. Now I have run in colder weather but this particular wind was not thrilling. Nonetheless, we are strapped on our numbers and jackets to make the trek to 5K start line. 


In case you are wondering I kept the coat and passed off the scarf for others to stay warm. The course was a quick 2 lap loop with an amazing down hill finish!




















I was thoroughly happy with how I handled the hilly course and chilly winds. Overall, it was a great way to see the town plus a great new family Thanksgiving tradition.


After the trot, we made our way back home to cook up some Thanksgiving brunch. Oh that's right, Thanksgiving dinner mid-day, meaning more eating. 





















Overall, we had a blast cooking and made a huge dent in the food. Post Thanksgiving naps then began and here we are, contemplating another round. 

I hope you all are having a wonderful time with family and friends.
