Tomorrow morning B & I will be running the Dana Point Turkey Trot. I haven’t run a 10K since last July, and B’s never run one (if you can believe it). I’m having a few mixed feelings about the race that I need to sort through :
Pro : Burn some kcals before a day of feasting! (I’m hoping to it’ll be at least enough to cover the requisite wine-while-cooking)
Con : Spending many hours in the kitchen after sprinting 6.2 miles sounds like a blast… NOT (night-before prep? what is that?)
Pro : Finally meet Danica!
Con : Also meet thousands of snotty, wound-up little brats at the Kids’ Run (still no progress on that grandkid thing, sorry Dad B)
Pro : Nice mid-distance race to get primed & pumped for RnR Vegas next weekend!
Con : I’ll unrealistically attempt to PR (:48.32) and end up vomiting/dying/poopingmypants
Pro : Continue a new Turkey Trot tradition with B – last year as my boyfriend, this year as my fiance, and (hopefully) next year as my husband!
Con : Umm we don’t actually run together so I guess the above point is debatable
Pro : At least there won’t be snow! (a la Turkey Trot ’09 in Ohio)
I am actually really looking forward to it. I’m also looking forward to a nice quiet celebration at home – just us and the pups. Obviously it’d be nice to be with family and friends for the holiday, but I guess it’ll just be THAT much more special when we do go home for Christmas. :)
What are y’all doing for the holiday? Anybody else Turkey Trotting? Cooking your first bird? Party hopping till you slip into a food coma? We’re not having your traditional Thanksgiving meal, but I do have a nice meal planned (pending on my success in the kitchen). And then I’m making B take me to Harry Potter 7 :)
