Thanksgiving Plans

I ran the Nicholasville Turkey Trot 5k this weekend. It was a really great course - a lot of downhill stretches, a water stop about the 2.5 mile mark, and everything was clearly marked. I ran the first mile in 7:34 - I didn't know my legs could move that fast! I finished in 26:06 - a 5k PR for me.

Chad and I will leave for Sevierville, Tennessee in the morning. We are meeting Chad's family there for a relaxing Thanksgiving in the Smoky Mountains. I've never been to this part of the country, but I've heard it is beautiful. I'm excited about it all - a break from work, a chance to relax, spending time with Chad and his family, hot tubs and fireplaces, trail runs, outlet malls, and FOOD!

Since we will be "off grid" I probably won't be posting until after the weekend. Here's to a happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful time with friends and family!

What a cool race. In NYC, there is also a "run now to eat later" race, but it is on the days of the NFL playoffs and, notably, the Gridiron Classic on the morning of the superbowl.
Sounds awesome, and great job!
