On Thanksgiving day, at 8:30am I ran my first 5k! The race has become a popular pre-thanksgiving tradition in my town, and thousands of people were running it! It was unbelievably cold, but I am so proud of myself for doing it. I finished in 33:24, giving me an average pace of just over 11 minutes. I had never run the entire course before and was shocked to find that the hills people were warning me about were no joke! I’m just glad that the road wasn’t slippery.

After the race I enjoyed Thanksgiving with Chris and his family. It was a wonderful time with excellent food and amazing company. I regrettably didn’t have my camera for the occasion, but believe me, everything was delicious (and delicious looking).
