Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers! I’m glad to hear many of you liked my post on How to Eat Well During the Holidays Without Stressing Yourself Out. Great tips from you guys in the comments, too!
Matt, my brother Steve, and I were up early this morning to run the Alexandria 5 mile Turkey Trot, which is my favorite DC area Thanksgiving race – I think this was my 4th or 5th time doing it! I’m getting over a bad cold so I took it easy on pace and enjoyed the scenery, but Matt and Steve blew it out and finished in 37:04 for a 7:25 minute mile average pace – nice!
Who else got out for a pre-turkey run today? 🙂
And now, time to prepare to feast! I ordered a local turkey, pumpkin pie, bread, and a ton of local produce from From the Farmer for my family’s feast. Zara was randomly obsessed with the brussels sprouts! Weirdo.
Matt and I are in charge of roasted root veggies, brussels sprouts, and homemade cranberry sauce. Better get to it. 🙂
I hope you’re all enjoying a happy day with family and friends! I’ll be back tomorrow to share a delicious leftover turkey wheat berry salad recipe (with leftover cranberry sauce vinaigrette!). Have a wonderful holiday and weekend, everyone!
