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!
