There are some pretty neat running photos in this post, but I had to put them at the end instead of the start… because nothing beats photos of deep-fried turkey.The other night my family got out gallons of oil and a big ole’ hot bucket for a deep-fried feast. Things we deep fried include tater tots…Onion rings:Wings:Ham:Okra:And pickles, but I think my hands were too greasy to hold the camera at that point. Here are the master chefs:I joined the kiddos as master taste tester.Of all the fried goodness, I think the turkey and onion rings were my favorite!I was also in charge of the one thing we didn’t fry.Welcome to the South.Okay, this is a running blog after all… so here is evidence I got out there and ran off all that grease ;).Anthony joined me for five of my seven soggy miles yesterday morning.We ran through some neighborhoods behind my house for a change of scenery. At the end of my run I did some striders, which always make you feel extra-accomplished and extra-out of breath. I’m still in “off-season” mode and focusing on strength training more than speed work — so a few bursts of sprinting felt good!Phew! That was fun.
Have a great start to your last week of 2013!
