Sorry for the delay in getting this post up, but I’ve been spending the last 3 days stuffing my face with goodies from the Linder’s and the Stenzel’s. It didn’t take me long to go from Patrick Swayze to Chris Farley.
On Thanksgiving morning, Sarah, Steph, and I ran the Turkey Day 5K in downtown Minneapolis. I decided that I needed to have fun with this run (there’s not much that I don’t have fun with), so I knew that a costume was in order. Steph was going to dress up as well, but she couldn’t find a good costume (or she wussed out, I’m not sure). I didn’t need no stinkin costumed partner - I’d do this all by myself if I had to. So I spent 15 bucks at Jo-Ann Fabrics, and turned myself into a Native American:
Sarah and I in the Target Center before the race.

What? ...8000? No?! Really....?
I had no idea. I was thinking there’d be around 1 - 2,000 people. But I was NOT expected 8,000. I knew it wasn’t going to be a fast run, but the idea of there being 8,000 people running a 3.1 mile race sealed that notion. Like Sarah said, it was more of an obstacle course than a road race.
This is around mile 2.5 along the Mississippi.
He looked warmer than I was.
And more delicious.
Sisters? Yes. Of course.
Well, we were done with the race, and off to restock all the calories that we burned off on the run (probably by 10 fold). Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
