It has been hard to carve out some time during this busy season to write. I have been crafting and menu planning for my first time hosting Thanksgiving. In addition I am 3/4 of the way into my Marathon training. I actually took tomorrow off of work so that I can squeeze in my 20 miler.
This is the time of the year that we we are all thankful for our blessings, family, and friends. A couple of weekends ago, my running friends, husbands, and kids all got together for our first annual Runsgiving! In all, there were 6 families. It was nice to get together outside of running and really enjoy each other and be thankful for the bond we have built through running. Our husbands and kids are our biggest cheerleaders supporting us through all of our training. So with this Runsgiving I am thankful for my family’s support and my friends who push me to go the extra mile.
For Runsgiving the host made the best turkey I have ever had, hands down! It was a Maple Brined turkey. I am attempting this for my Thanksgiving. I will let you know how it works out. Then each of us brought a side or a desert. I made stuffing for the first time; in the crock pot. Jon and I never see eye to eye on stuffing, but he actually gave me a two thumbs up on this one! As you can probably gather, I am not much if cook! I try!
Do you celebrate a Friendsgiving? If you do, what do you and your friends plan?
