This Thanksgiving, we were in the great state of South Carolina at my brother and sister-in-law's house.
Their neighborhood hosted a 5k - there were about 100 people registered this year - their biggest yet.
It was small but fun.
Greg won the race in 18-ish minutes.
I finished in 27:20 - same time as my last 5k. An 8:47 pace. not my best pace sicne last year I ran an 8k at a 8:29 pace, but I haven't trained for this and it was all for fun.

My nephew ran the kids race.
And then my brother and brother-in-law pushed in for the 5k in the jogging stroller with flat tires.

So much to be thankful for.

Ever since IMCDA, I have had a touch of the lazies.

I go to the gym a few times a week.
I run and people watch.
 I lift weights and people watch.

I kind of watch what I eat...I watch it go in my mouth.
However, I have also been watching my clothes shrink.

this past weekend I watched my friends show how awesome they are with fantastic times at the Richmond Marathon, Half Marathon, and 8k. I passed out water at mile 2. It was cold. But awesome.

I am now back on the nutrition train. Watching what goes in my mouth...and making sure it's healthy. No more of my beloved fall baking days for me. And I am getting back into training.
Not sure what I am training for, though.

Oh and I am eating my words.
I want to do another marathon.
I have one in mind...when I sign up I will let you know.

lots of mud
swam through ICE
