A Day to Be Thankful & Trotting for Turkey

I'm writing from NY where I'm glad to be with my extended family to share Thanksgiving dinner.  I have many things to be thankful for: a wonderful wife, awesome family, good health, and a successful career are among the ones that come to mind.

In order to justify the copious amounts of food I will eat tonight to show my thanks, I joined a good friend of mine (and some of her friends) for a 5 mile Turkey Trot this morning.  Before I headed out for the run I woke up super early to finish the prep on our holiday turkey.  After a final rub of sage butter it was off to the races.

The weather was beautiful (if not a bit cold) and there was a great crowd.  I was hesitant about the run because of a sore calf, but once adrenaline kicked in I forgot all about it.  I had a great run and was really happy with my time.  I finished the five miles in 38:20 at a pace of about 7:40/mile.

Now it's time to eat turkey.

My handi-work: the ultra un-kosher turkey!

  2. Always read the supplement labels to see if there are warnings that would make them inappropriate for you. And, of course if you have any medical conditions or take medications or other supplements it's always a good idea to speak with your doctor before starting anything new.

  3. I knew at a young age that the nasty green shot you got at the health food store or juice bar, that was followed with an orange squad (yes, an orange wedge, but I called them squads) was good for me, but I had no idea why, the same kinda follows now, except I know a few more details about it's real health benefits, because I am genuinely interested in what it provides to my overall well-being.
