Running on Turkey day

So a friend called and asked me to do the anthem turkey trot on Thanksgiving...I hesitated because 1. I didn't want to spend the money.  2.  I wanted to be busy doing turkey and nothing else
BUT
I signed up.  It is only 2 blocks from my house...so really...that leaves me no excuse.  I can always cook after the race and have a late turkey day.  I need to reach onderland...this is killing me and I need to do it.

Today is fill day.  I can use a small fill..still eating too much.  I am nervous of getting over filled and especially close to the holidays.  But I have stalled.  I am eating close to 1500 calories..good stuff most of the  time and I worked hard at getting my exercise in this weekend.  I even did laps around the yard just to break 10000 steps before I went in to watch tv.  hubby laughed at me but was impressed.

This week Johnny is off from school, I am hoping he takes it easy on my hubby who is at home with him.  I hate coming home to a stressed out spouse and a rambunctious kid.  It makes for a stressful evening if you know what I mean.  I did stock up on some soups..trying some of the campbells soups that some of my other banders have been raving about.  Seeing how tonight and tomorrow I will be on liquids.

What a great way to start out the holiday! You'll feel great for doing it.
It's going to be 60 degrees here on Thursday so hubby and I will go for a morning run, then I'm hoping to convince the family to take a walk together after supper.

Turkey trots are fun, and there are usually lots of people, including whole families. I have walked a couple and loved them, but that was before my knees got so bad. I know you'll enjoy it. Good luck getting into the 100s!

I hope the fill gets you back to where you want to be. :)

Turkey Trots are so much fun. I normally do one every year but we are having Thanksgiving too early for me to be able to do it. You will have a blast.

Good luck with the men.
