Cooking the Turkey & the Turkey Chase

Typically I am overly prepared for Thanksgiving. This is my favorite holiday of the year. It is the cook’s holiday.
I get to show my cooking prowess to those who I have over for the eating of all of the food.
This year I am making dinner for one and I have no problem with that.
Just because I am single doesn’t mean I am going to give up enjoying one of my favorite days of the year!

I have cooked Thanksgiving by myself for a number of years in my adult life and my mom and I cooked it together since I was 16ish.
I have a set schedule that I keep and I like to keep my traditions intact. So, this year I will spend Thursday cooking as I would as if I had people over to eat with me.
No, I don’t mind being alone. Yes, I have had multiple invitations to join friends that I love.
I have thought about it and I want to keep up my regular Thanksgiving routine.

That includes running a 5k on Thanksgiving morning!
This year I am running Dave’s Turkey Chase 5k, held in downtown Toledo!

But, I’ll say it again…I am going to give it everything I’ve got to PR on Thursday morning.
I have to be faster than a 10:41 pace. I think I can keep that up for 3 miles.

What are your Thanksgiving plans?
Do you cook? Run? Just eat all of the food?

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Fall is hands down my favorite time of year. It isn’t just the beauty of the changing leaves or the perfect weather finally hitting the area, I love fall because of the sense of renewal I feel. A lot of people say that spring is the rebirth of nature and a good time to make meaningful changes. I […]
