Happy Belated Thanksgiving to one and all.
We run the Tropical Park Turkey Trot 5k as a family every year. We've done it together for probably 4 years. It's officially a tradition. This year my daughter ran the whole thing with me. She actually did the whole thing last year too but with my husband. This year we went a little faster. It was Stone girls versus Stone Boys. Since it was a race - of course - Jack took off light a lightening bolt at the start.
|Stone Girls ... the winners. That's my husband photo bombing in the background.|
|He loves the kids trot. He said after, "there were a lot of really fast kids!"|
The boys cheated and cut the course. Stinkers. Jack went on to do the Kids trot which he loves. It was a good morning.
To get ready for the marathon I ran 16 miles on Saturday. I was a little nervous to go so long since my 14 mile treadmill run had been somewhat short. No idea how much since i was clueless for the distance. Plus with the travel and Thanksgiving stuff. I didn't have what I consider enough miles during the week. I'm a fan of the Daniels formula of your long run should only be 1/3 of your total mileage so if you run 16 miles in your long run your weekly total should be at least 48 miles. My total was 35.5.
|It was a beautiful morning run. Cool the whole way. This was halfway.|
Oh and I went to a masters swimming holiday party. They let me in although I haven't been swimming in weeks, weeks (enough weeks that I think I could say months ... eeek). No pictures of that.
Lastly I leave you with a photo that came across my twitter of a triathlete with a pretty good sense of humor seen on the IMCozumel course this weekend.
|I don't know who he is but I think it's pretty funny. Also I love that you can see where the suit sleeves end because of his tattoo sleeves on his actual arms.|
