Thanksgiving & Training for the 5K

I am back from a lovely long weekend full of Thanksgiving celebrations! There was so much food I could barely fit it all in this photo:

What was left out of this picture was the asparagus and green beans. There seems to have been an orange theme to this dinner apparently…

And as a side note, that is indeed turkey on the table. Everyone in my family besides myself and my sister are meat-eaters, so there was lots of that. However, everything else on the table was vegan!

So after a long weekend of stuffing my face family get-togethers, I’ve had to work extra hard at the gym to get ready for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon this weekend.

I am doing the 5K this weekend and am so beyond excited! I have never done any sort of running event, so this will be an interesting experience.

Back in the day (elementary/secondary school days), I was a long distance runner. It came so naturally to me. Now trying it again in my twenties feels more like this:

Slowly I’ve been getting in shape again and it is honestly the best I have felt in years. Slowly but surely.

Is anybody else doing a running event soon? Or have done one recently? Let me know!

Have a great day!
