Yesterday started off by waking up at
the crack of dawn 7 am to get ready for the Drumstick Dash! It was held in a town about 30 minutes away from where I live, so we knew we had to leave a little early. We were supposed to leave at 7:30, but knowing my family, we didn’t end up leaving until 8. I’m not gonna lie, there was a point where I thought we weren’t going to make it on time. Luckily we did!
leg warmers are becoming my new obsession…:)
The race was 4.5 miles and my goal was just to finish without walking. When the race started I stuck with my sister and dad for the first 2 or 3 miles and then I decided to pick up my pace a little. I ended up finishing, only stopping once to get water, in a little less than 48 minutes.
According to my Garmin the course was a little longer than 4.5 miles. I’m pretty happy for my time considering the course was really packed (around 9,000 people!) and I have only been running “long” distances for a short time. I really enjoy races and I am seriously considering training for a half marathon. Maybe I’m a little crazy…:)

After getting ready (leggings and an oversized sweatshirt for me since we are staying home this year:)) and watching the Macy’s Day Parade, it was cooking time!
I was basically in charge of all of the side dishes minus the mashed potatoes and jello. First up I made stuffing bread:
Mama Pea’s green bean casserole.
Pumpkin pie :)
plus more sweet potato and green bean casserole:)
Overall it was a very yummy Thanksgiving:) Now I can’t wait until lunch today when I can eat all of the leftovers;)
I don’t think I will be participating in the Black Friday shopping today, but I am working 5pm-midnight. I have no idea how I’m going to stay awake… I’m an old lady at heart;)
Enjoy shopping and eating leftovers!
Peace and Love,
