It’s too early to tell but I may be getting back into my running groove!
The early darkness does mess up much of my weekly running but I have managed to get my runs in.
I need to add more miles to my Saturday and Sunday but for now, that’s only 6 miles…but hey, it’s something!
I’ve registered for a few 5ks. I have one early on Thanksgiving morning “The Hungry Turkey” in downtown St. Louis.
And another one on Saturday morning “The Chill on the Hill” which is in a beautiful little Italian borough of St. Louis.
I’m also registered for my favorite…”Run for Your Beads” in Soulard of St. Louis.
I’m starting to read more running blogs which I have avoided lately so just maybe, I’m back in the groove.
My daughter is law is cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year at her house. I’ll make a black walnut cake (favorite of my daddy..and mine), mac and cheeses, rolls, homemade cranberry sauce, deviled eggs and she is making the rest!
I am hoping that Daniel will join me on in the Hungry Turkey 5k on Thanksgiving morning but it’s going to be very cold so I don’t see that happening! Kids run free but I did buy him a shirt…just in case. 🙂
The Christmas/Thanksgiving parade will happen right after the 5k in downtown St. Louis so I suspect the traffic will be bad and streets closed all over but I like being able to run to help with the overeating guilt that I often experience on Thanksgiving. 🙂
I need more winter running clothes…maybe Santa can bring me some things.
In case you just don’t know what to get the “runner girl” in your life….here are some suggestions for stocking stuffers.
You better be good to your runner this year…….
