Thanksgiving

Cranberries dripping down my chin

Have stained my pilgrim suit.

I ate too much Thanksgiving day

But I don't give a hoot.

I slurped a pile of dressing,

Gobbled down a turkey thigh,

Dribbled messy cranberries

Devoured some pumpkin pie.

Within me on this special day

It's a thankful heart that beats.

For all the things that I enjoy

But mainly for the eats.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one running a long-ish Turkey Trot. (Most of the ones I've seen seem to be 1 mile-5K.

I'm just catching up on my blog reading... so behind.. sounds like you're having a blast in Memphis!! I'm doing the POTM challenge with you too!! :( I've been piling on my miles and added another 6.75 today! Woo!!

Kelsey said...

Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving - and 11 miles! That's a great way to start the day! I found out my gym was open and there was an awesome spin class, so I did 80 minutes of spinning and then an easy 3 miles, instead of the 6 miles I had planned. Oh well, I know the spinning doesn't count for POTM, but it was good workout anyway :)
