I ran the Turkey Trot 5k and was able to shave 10 minutes off my 5k time. My normal 5k time was usually 45 minutes. I was able to run it in 34 minutes and came in 25th place out of 70 people. I was 12th out of the women. I always wanted to run the Turkey Trot and I am so glad I did. I was able to push my self since losing weight and it was great. This was the first 5k I have ran in awhile that was not a OCR race.
We also had a fabulous Thanksgiving with family from WV. We spent all day with them. There is nothing better than spending time with family that you have not seen in while. For me, I have went through a lot over the years and lost a lot. Spending time with family matters more to me than anything else. We choose to not go shopping on Black Friday. We choose to spend it with each other and spend quality time with each other that we all needed. To me, that is what the holiday is about. Not spending a ton of money on stuff or blowing off the holiday to go stand in crowds to get the hottest new toy.
I hope more people spent time with their families instead of shopping. Years from now, the toys and tvs will not matter. Your family will.
