Here is Nina & her friend Molly. It was Molly's first 5K! Always fun to see a first timer finish!
Steve won a big tub of pretzels in the door prizes awards. They are even in the holiday shapes...BONUS!
After we went home & ate pancakes it was time for me to do my Thanksgiving Virtual 5K. Steve & my Mom walked with me. After such a crappy weather week it was great to see the sun! By noon it was sunny & low 50's. Perfect day for a slow TENZ walk.
This is a funny picture. My Mom does not like here picture taken so she was trying to hide behind me. I love the look on Steve's face. Not sure if he is making fun of me & my virtual 5K or my Mom's silliness. Either way this picture cracked me up!
My goal was to walk without pain. If I did feel any pain I would just turned up the juice. We walked from the house to the Arboretum & back. It would be about a 3.3 mile walk.
When we got to the arbo we stopped to check out the new memorial for the victims of Flight 5191. It is a beautiful sculpture of 49 silver birds taking flight, one for every life lost that day. It was the first time I had seen the sculpture & was so moved that I forgot to take a picture. If you are interested, you can read more about it HERE.
After checking out the sculpture we continued on our way. No PR's today. Just a nice, leisurely pain free walk. My 5K time was 1h01m28s. My total time & distance: 1h5m47s, 3.34 Miles. Below are pictures of my fabulous splits.
After we finished & showered we got busy drinking and a fixin'. Yep, my cooking always takes better when everyone is drinking! Instead of a bunch of snacks, we tried out a couple of Chocolate Stouts. Surprisingly, we all liked them. I knew I would & I had a feeling Mom would but I was really surprised that Steve liked them too.

Instead of the traditional Turkey we cooked one of our CSA chickens on the grill. For sides we made Ramon Noodle Cole Slaw, Mashed Potatoes & Stuffing along with some Malbec wine. Everything was delish!
We aren't done eating yet! For dessert, we have Blueberry & Pecan Pie. Yummy.
Today has been the perfect Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving Y'all! Gobble, gobble 'till you wobble!
