Nothing like a 25-degree run to wake you up!It was fr-fr-freeezing this morning but the sight of another awesome sunrise helped get me out the door.I’ve got a few days left of low-key post-marathon runs. Over the next two weeks I have two shorter races, and then I’ll finally settle into the “off” season — which, according to my coach, means lots of strength training and less running.
Having a diverse game plan for the next couple months helps keep me motivated and avoid the post-race blues.My favorite shoes + my favorite season.Are you wondering what happened to the turkey?! Well, we cooked it! Here’s a recap of Friendsgiving III (and here’s a recap of Friendsgiving II).
We started prepping early. Meredith came in from New York to help make the stuffing… (ps my ridiculously fun apron/wedding gift is from sassyapron)And the pies!Anthony was the drink master. This year’s cocktail: a cranberry margarita, courtesy of Annie’s Eats!Friends (and more food!) started flowing in around 7 p.m., and then it was time for turkey-carvin’.A feast!We were pretty proud of our turkey this year, which we made “the Michigander way” as usual.Our friends brought everything from cranberry sauce to soda bread. I got first, seconds, and thirds of everything (and fourths of the mac ‘n’ cheese).The most important rule of a Friendsgiving party: Provide heavy-duty paper plates to maximize food pileups ;).Your hosts!After all that partying, we were ready for a Sunday that was 99% lazy, 1% non-lazy. Anthony took me to the gym for a CrossFit workout! It’s been a long time since I quit CrossFit, so it was fun/painful to get back into it… though as my smile and barely-weighted bar show, it was mostly just fun.Stay warm today!
