Thanksgiving 10k

by Meghann on November 26, 2009

Happy Thanksgiving!!

This year I have plenty to be thankful for including my family, my health, my friends, my job, this blog and Derek. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am very thankful to lead the life I do and I wouldn’t change any of it for a second.

What are you thankful for this year?

Having a sister who is willing to wake up at 6:00am on Thanksgiving to run with me is a biggie on my list of thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately there were no Turkey Trots in out small hometown this morning, so my sister and I decided to create our own Thanksgiving Day 10k.

We set out on a simple out and back route and were able to play catch up. It had almost been a month since I last ran with my sister and I really missed her company!

We really booked it on the run and ended up completing out makeshift 10k at an average pace of 8:50. It felt great!

Can’t wait for that half marathon on Sunday now!

Last night I had prepped the dough for my Vegan Pumpkin Raisin Scones – only it wasn’t vegan as all my parents had was real butter. While my sister and I were on out run, my Dad put the dough in the oven to bake.


He did bake them a tad too long and they were slight burnt, but still very tasty.


I had one scone with a smear of apple butter.


And a side of grapes.


We are scheduled to arrive at my aunt & uncle’s for Thanksgiving around noon, which means I need to get going on roasting my veggies. Did I mention there will be 50 people at our family gathering? 50 people! It should be fun!

I’ll be back tonight with a full Thanksgiving recap.

Until then I will leave you with photos of something else I am thankful for – my puppies!




I’m also thankful for all the sam-e voters out there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

I’m getting ready to do my own 10k! I am thankful I have a body that I can do it with, a boyfriend who is running his first race, and a family that supports me with every step!
