A Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

This was a nice weekend for me for several reasons.

I did not have to work this weekend, which is a rarity. If I eliminate weekends that I took off of work for races, then I can't tell you the last time I had the whole weekend off.

This was the last Thanksgiving weekend before my daughters move away from home. They are old enough to be moving out (22 and 20), but it was nice to have a long holiday weekend with them first.

I am watching several friends compete in Ironman Cozumel through the magic of the internet. So far, so good for them all (although I am a bit concerned about one of them at this point).

We got a new refrigerator delivered today. So we will have ice and water on the door again for the first time in years.

Finally, I ran in a post-holiday 5K this weekend to attempt to fulfill one of this year's remaining goals--to run a sub-30 minute 5K. The previous 5K race where I set my 30:20 PR was in April 2009, and I had not run a 5K since then. This local race was a no-frills local race put on twice monthly by the local running store for a $1 entry fee (yes, $1!). I ran in in 27:05. :-)

Glad you had a great holiday weekend.

Congrats on the 5K PR - you did awesome!

Hope the Ironman Cozumel racers all did okay!

My co-worker with MS ended up doing the Ironman in around 12:30. Slower than he wanted, but still awesome in my eyes!
