Thanksgiving Plans

Thanksgiving is a great holiday.
I love that it falls near my birthday.
When I was little I loved it when my birthday actually fell on thanksgiving. It felt like an extra big party just for me. 
Now, I love the new traditions we've made. 
Running the Manchester Road Race (the 75th anniversary this year) with friends and family. This year myself, Kevin, my brother, his girlfriend, my mom & a couple friends will be running. So exciting!

I love making my cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes for thanksgiving dinner. This year I'm making a new recipe for my sweet potatoes, and I'm hoping they're to die for!
Thinking about what I'm thankful for, the good things to treasure in my life. Sometimes on a daily basis, its hard to see what the important things in life are. Having a day to remind us we should be more thankful is a good thing.

This year we've decided to go to dinner at my mom's house. After the road race, I should get another 5 miles in, as scheduled, but I'm not sure where to fit it in. I may just get it done on Friday morning since TRX is cancelled.
What are your thanksgiving plans?
Any plans to get active with your family?
Happy turkey eating!

yay I love meeting other people that get to celebrate Thanksgiving on their birthday. One year they forgot my cake so they stuck candles in the turkey! Have a great one!

I am definitely running Manchester next year. The race is huge. I checked the website and registration is closed. It looks like so much fun and a great family race. Good luck tomorrow.

So glad to hear that you are going to your Mom's for Thanksgiving. Have a great day!

My sister's birthday is November 30 so we always celebrate her birthday at Thanksgiving.

Have a great time running the road race!
