I runfess that I contemplated participating my first official Turkey Trot yesterday. We apparently not only have the largest Turkey Trot in Sacramento, but the largest Thanksgiving Day fun run in the country! 29,600+ people registered. Amazing! Maybe I should actually do it next year. I ended up doing a solo Turkey Trot around the neighborhood yesterday instead and it was a lovely day to get outside and move your body before the big Thanksgiving feast.
I runfess that my bodyweight training is kicking my butt right now (I am aching in places I didn’t know had muscles – ha!), but I’ve also finally experienced first hand that cross-training really improves my running and that is very exciting.
I runfess that I am not a big fan of Black Friday. I mean, what’s the point? Most deals are available before Black Friday now and usually last til after Cyber Monday. I hate that stores are open on Thanksgiving Day when people should be home with their families instead. I also don’t want anything that bad that I would camp outside a store or fight with other people over it. So, all this to say that you won’t see me anywhere a mall or big department store today, but I might be doing some online Christmas shopping and take advantage of some deals.
I runfess that I really enjoyed our low key Thanksgiving yesterday. As much as I miss family around the holidays (they’re just too far away), I love being in the kitchen most of the afternoon cooking a delicious meal for J and me and snacking and talking and listening to music until the bird is ready.
I runfess that I really love the long four-day holiday weekend. I love Thanksgiving itself (we don’t have this holiday in Germany, but I’ve come to embrace it), but I also usually do a lot of Christmas planning over Thanksgiving weekend.
Did you run a Turkey Trot yesterday – official or solo?
I hope you had a lovely day with family and/or friends!
