Good morning, all!  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your families.


I started out my morning at the annual Turkey Trot 5K.  They had a record 2100 participants this year!  Huge for a small town.  I was hoping to do the best I could considering I ran a marathon 1.5 weeks ago, and I was thinking it would be nice to do something in the 22:00's - I have been running 23:00's 5K's since my injury last fall, and my PR was 21:48 from May '11.  I ran as hard as I could, and I amazed myself when I crossed the finish line at 21:41!!!!!!!   A new PR, baby!!!!  This yummy bakery provided pies for the 1st and 2nd place winners in each age group - darn, I finished 3rd! 


DH and I went to Target to stand in line outside at 6:45 last night for their 9:00 opening.  We wanted to get the kids iPods this year, and they were offering a $40 gift card with each one you bought.  So, we froze our buns off waiting, but we got them!  :)  And some other random items that were on sale, including some cozy fleece PJ pants for me.  :) 


Today, I will probably take the kids to the park to enjoy the upper 50's before a cold front comes in for tomorrow.


Have a great day, all!

I'll try one more time. I logged in earlier, after two attempts, wrote a post, but it wouldn't post.

Our Thanksgiving was OK, nice day at ~60 degrees. DH's kids went out and threw the football around in the street like they used to when they were kids; dinner was good, and the Lion's game was kinda crazy, which is the way it is for the Lion's. We had it on during dinner, and you can see the TV from the table at SIL's house. The in-laws are big into TV watching, so they don't do the "TV off during dinner" thing.

DH didn't have to be to work 'til 9:45 so I feel kinda behind all day. I ran 7 miles when he left; I have done some cleaning around here and some minor decorating. I need to do the final read of one paper and start another for ex phys. Doing some laundry too; it's a usual Friday.

Heather - congrats on your PR. We have the cold front today that you guys are getting tomorrow; it's grey and windy.
