Happy (late) Thanksgiving!

Our morning started with a Turkey Trot in downtown Orlando!

It was warm and sunny, weather that we are definitely not used to running in at this point in the Northeast!

Before leaving for the race, I snacked on a yogurt and banana for some fuel.

The race was packed!  So many people came out to the Thanksgiving Day Run.

Some people were dressed in full turkey gear, while others just wore hats.  I don’t know how anyone wore costumes because it was hot out in the sun!

After making our way into the crowd, the race started and we were off!

The course weaved through the neighborhood surrounding Lake Eola.  Many of the streets were brick, so I was a little worried about falling!  But, we kept up our pace and finished the 5K in 32 minutes!  I have been running a few days each week and very slow, so I was happy with our time.

After the race, we headed to iHop for breakfast!  I had a garden veggie omelet with wheat toast.

Then, it was time to get ready for Thanksgiving Dinner at the Peabody Hotel.

It was an all day brunch, that we attended around 4pm for dinner.  They had everything from eggs to salads to a raw bar to the traditional turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce.

My first trip up the the buffet included some salad, fruit, cheese, yams, beets and pumpkin ravioli (which were awesome!).

Then, I headed back for a little bit of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce and dessert (unpictured).

Happy Thanksgiving!
