Every year for the last few Thanksgivings, I have done a half marathon. It’s a good way for me to feel active, get my steps in, and not feel so bloated after a huge meal. This year, I didn’t train for the half marathon. I still haven’t been able to get myself over the mental-hump to train. But, I did sign up to do the local 5K, and my mom decided to join me.
It was a very cold day, but I was grateful for the chance to get out and move before dinner! My dad watched Luke (Colton always plays football with his brother on Thanksgiving morning) for me, and he was excited to see us after the race. Hard to believe that last year, I did this race almost 20 weeks pregnant with him! I cried almost the entire way…haha.
At Thanksgiving dinner this year, Luke tried turkey for the first time, and LOVED it. I wasn’t surprised in the slightest. He’s the son of two Paleo-diet following carnivores. He’s also loved solid foods since we introduced him around 4 months old.
The holidays are better together! It’s been so fun to introduce Luke to all of our existing traditions, and to make our own together.
