Team Sparkle Debut

Posted on November 28, 2011. Filed under: Thanksgiving |

I ran in our second annual Turkey Trot for SOME on Thanksgiving morning in D.C.  I love this race for many reasons, it’s for a great cause, it’s a great way to get some exercise before stuffing your face later and it’s so much fun to run with my family.

The fam, post Turkey Trot

In addition, this year was the debut of my green sparkle skirt.  Stephanie mentioned the company in a previous post and I have to agree, they are amazing.  The skirt was delivered within two days and included an email following up to ask if I had any upcoming races.  I totally appreciate the online small business community – where even a brief handwritten note is included in the package, thank YOU Sparkle Skirts!

Fun with Sparkle Skirts

I will be wearing this skirt again this coming weekend during the Hot Chocolate race.  I, however, will only be doing the 5k while Stephanie rocks the crap out of the 15k in her skirt.  Not to worry, I will be there at the finish for the skirts to re-unite!

I am trying to pick up my running game and have signed up for my very first half marathon in D.C. on March 17.  I’ve only ever run a 10k, so this will be a new and exciting challenge for me!

Back to Thanksgiving before I wrap up this post.  The food is always the highlight of the day for everybody, right?!   This year was no different for me and for that reason I decided to make mini pumpkin whoopie pies for dessert.

My masterpiece and oh so tasty

You can’t really go wrong with pumpkin cookie and cream cheese filling – with plenty of butter to boot!

Hope everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
