Hi Folks and Happy Thanksgiving! I'm waiting for about 15 more minutes before I start the mashed potatoes and let the turkey rest while all of the rest of the wonderful meal trimmings are assembled and then TA DA! Dinner! But right now we're enjoying the peace of a quiet house and that smell...Oh, that heavenly smell!
Today started out so great. My family ran in the local Turkey Trot in Uniontown.
We gathered up some friends and brought them along to run a 5K this morning and it was terrific! I put up a decent time (third in my age group) and felt relaxed and happy. The race was reasonably flat, but there were a few hills to challenge the hamstrings. And some downhills to catch your breath and stretch your legs. And 210 runners and walkers that participated so that the local Salvation Army realized a $5000 profit. Not bad for a first race.
Then we made two quick visits to relatives and then came home for a shower and to get the turkey started.
Now I'm looking forward to a quiet evening at home with Dave and the kids.
This is a day to remember. Health, friends, family, food, and happiness. We have so much to be thankful for.
See you tomorrow!
