We kicked ours off with a turkey trot, organized by the DC Road Runners! Considering it is 20 degrees out, we were happy to stay warm inside the GW Middle School gym until about five minutes before start time.Around 9 a.m. we lined up with the other runners and took a freezing photo together.And then we were off! The race had more than 5,000 participants, so my first mile was more of a weaving jog than actually running. I came in at 36:15, which is about a minute slower than I wanted, but still not bad!Anthony and I tried to run together, but got separated during the start line madness. He beat me by two minutes! Cheetah. The race was pretty fun — lots of great costumes and cheering!And it was over before we knew it. We hopped on the metro for a frigid ride home. Thanks for a great race, DC Road Runners!
Since it’s Thanksgiving, I’ll share another seasonal recipe :). After our Friendsgiving, we went a little leftover crazy and made a soup!We loosely followed this recipe and tossed our turkey + any soup-friendly leftovers and veggies into a pot. The key ingredient here is lots of fresh black pepper. Dad, I remember you always covering Grandma’s chicken noodle soup in black pepper..?Speaking of family, I hope you’re spending time with yours today! Anthony and I are hanging out solo in DC, but can’t wait to go home in a couple weeks for belated T-day turkey. Gobble gobble.
