Turkey Trottin'

Ha! Well, leave it to the Footsy gals to already be breaking our training schedule. Sal hasn't run in over a week because of a lingering bug that can't seem to get enough of her. And it's quite possible that both gals may or may not have overindulged in, not one, but two Thanksgiving potlucks in less than 3 days. And NOW, we're completely skipping the whole "run a 5K" in December step of our pre-training training schedule, because Sal's big brother (yes, the same big bro) and tween-aged niece signed up for the Sam Lapidus Montclair 10K Run in Birmingham and, frankly, we don't like to be left out (read: we can't say "no" to anything).

There is no doubt in our minds that we are completely underprepared for a 10K. After all, we're still struggling to hit the 3 mile mark. Even so, it will be a good way to kick start our training and re-introduce us to the racing culture. And more importantly, it will make us feel less guilty about stuffing our faces afterwards.

As Sal's much wiser and always inspiring bro so eloquently put it...

"I have no empirical data to analyze, but my hunch is that it will be quite the struggle for this tub o' lard. Don't care....doing it anyway."

Gobble Gobble! Wish us luck!


  1. Wish I were there to run it with y'all! Love this blog--it's inspiring me to start training again too!
