Pre-Thanksgiving Holiday

Happy Thanksgiving Eve to everyone! J and I both had the day off today and spent the day running errands and wasting time, it felt nice to not have any real obligations and just enjoy our day off.

A few things we did accomplish... Costco and Whole Foods. Somehow I have managed to eat an entire pound of Spinach in just 2 1/2 days, probably because I have been eating these like it's my job...

I guess since the temperature has headed back into the upper 70s I have been craving smoothies. I basically make my standard smoothies (strawberry, orange, banana) and add 2 huge handfuls of spinach- looks awful, tastes amazing!!!

I also had to pick up my packet for tomorrow's race, and while at the running store I picked up something for my tree....

I always get a new ornament every year, and I thought what better than to remind me of what I spent so much of this year focused on. I also picked up a 13.1 ornament for my mom, she has gotten to be quite the racer.

So now I am watching Eat, Pray, Love on Redbox and trying to collect myself for tomorrow's race. I have been given the green light to go out at what I will call conservative half marathon pace, and to pace off another girl until mile 8. If at mile 8 the knee still feels good, I am allowed to really pick it up- here is hoping the plan works! I am planning to do everything as I did on Sunday, and praying my knee responds the same.

Everyone enjoy the start of your Thanksgivings, and I will see you tomorrow with a race recap!


  1. I hope the race went well and I can't wait for the recap... I also really hope your knee stays strong.

    Happy Thanksgiving :)

  2. I love the ornaments! How did you like the movie? I read the book and started watching the movie today, but Julia Roberts was bothering me. She doesn't fit the role and sadly she doesn't look that good... and I am a fan of hers!
