For the past two years, I have participated in our local "Turkey Strut". After awhile the race registrations add up, so I didn't register this year. All along I thought I would do a 5K through our neighborhood, we have a nice route. Thanksgiving morning came and I had a million things still left on the to-do list: make deviled eggs; make fruit salad; (oh, did I mention I hadn't been to the grocery store yet?!); clean kitchen; vacuum house... and on and on. Super husband and super son were busy trying to gather the leaves that had fallen last week - for some reason they always accumulate around the front of our house and get tracked inside. We're all making nice progress - gotta love TEAMWORK - before I realize it, it's noon and we're done! Our guests aren't arriving until 5p, so I have plenty of time. And then the excuses begin --
- I've worked hard this morning - I should relax until company arrives.
- What if the virtual 5K times are posted like last year? Then, I'll feel defeated b/c I'm sure I will be slower than last year.
- I can do it tomorrow when I don't have any plans.
- Still struggling with what the "right" thing to do for my back.
