This year for Christmas my parents gave us our gift a little early. We were all gifted a Thanksgiving vacation in Cabo. And it was AWESOME.
We were there for 6 days and it was seriously the best Thanksgiving I have ever had. Seriously. I just reflected on all 35 Turkey Days and this one takes the cake. No work, no phones just fun.
It was around 80 degrees the entire week so we spent A LOT of time poolside.
During the last few days the kids wanted to attend “kids club” at the resort which gave us a few hours to explore
And ride sea-doos!

Most importantly we all got to spend a week together with no distractions. That was the best part of all.
Thank you Mom and Dad. Love you so very much.
And now we have just a few weeks until Christmas is here and then we will be ringing in 2014. We will be staying home (hooray!) and my FIL “Pops” will be staying at our house to celebrate. We are so glad that he will be here with us. It’s our first Christmas without Mama Kay and it’s going to be tough.
I will be running the inaugural SD Holiday Half (which is close to a sell out so register now if you want to run) while he is here and if LD can get everyone out of the house it will be Pop’s first time to see me run. It’s not going to be pretty, but I’ll get it done.
Speaking of racing, here is what I am registered for in 2014
January: Carlsbad Half
Feb: SD 10/20
April: Boston Marathon and Big Sur Marathon
November: New York Marathon
I will add some shorter races in if I am up to it. It still blows my mind that I BQ’d and got into NY. It’s going to be one heck of a year…now if I could just get motivated to train.
1. What did you do for Turkey Day?
2. Any plans for Christmas?

OMG! What an awesome gift from your parents!
Turkey Day, I did a Turkey Run (10K) and paced my friend for it. Then went up to Lake Tahoe with my boyfriend’s family.
Only race this year is a fun Christmas relay in SF.
Did you realize Boston is the day after Easter Sunday? I just realized that today!! I am not bringing my chlidren or my husband to Boston with me so I am kind of sad about being away from them for the holiday.
I know, so crazy! I wish the race was the week before so that it would fall during the kids Spring break. We are all going so I’m sure school will not be too happy about me having them miss a few days right after break. Service in Boston that Sunday?!
