Thanksgiving

I am thankful for a fairly stressfree Thanksgiving this year. Matt, Carlton and I woke up early and ran 13.1 miles through downtown Atlanta. It was a nice race, about 9000 people and I got 4th. Not really. It was freezing and lots of hills, but it was great! We were home by 10:30 to start cooking, but my legs were sore the rest of the day. We ate late which means you are hungrier longer, but it was so much easier to get everything done. We had made a couple pies the night before, but we were okay as we kept it small this year.I cooked my first turkey and it turned out great! Matt's Grandparents were able to come down from Madison, GA . SM keeps asking if we can haveThanksgiving again. He loves his brother (can't you tell by the chokehold of love?) Food and company was good, we played a little Wii and we finished off with Settlers (BP won)

Oh my goodness! My parents definitely have a "chokehold of love" photo of Rachel and I! It's priceless! Sounds like you all had a great thanksgiving. :-) You're an inspiration with the running...

Looks like you had a great Thanksgiving. We missed not having it with you guys. We still have never played settlers, not sure what the hype is all about. Maybe one day we will have to buy it. Happy Holidays!

Oh, and great race photos!
