Thanksgiving 2010 is off to a great start! :mrgreen:

Last night, Mal and I met up with a bunch of our friends for a mini-reunion/birthday party. It’s a tradition for all of us to get together the night before Thanksgiving and catch up. Here’s my recap of Thanksgiving Eve 2009 and my 10-Year High School Reunion in 2008. It’s always a fun time! 😀


At last night’s Thanksgiving Eve gathering, I drank a million Winter Warmer beers.


And ate a zillion Pig in a Blanket, which tortured my stomach for the rest of the night. 😕 I should have known better! 👿


I also munched on some other appetizers and a birthday cupcake.

Friends! :mrgreen:





This morning, I woke up a tad dehydrated, but ready to run! Now that I recommitted to my marathon training, I’m not letting myself skip any workouts. I ran 6 miles in 53:06, which was an average pace of 8:51 and fast for me! :mrgreen:


After my run, I made breakfast. I had a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and banana slices and a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee with eggnog in it. I <3 eggnog! 😀


Let the festivities begin! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! :mrgreen:



  1. I never thought to put eggnog in my coffee – that sounds delicious! What a fun tradition to get together with friends right before the craziness of the holiday season starts! I can’t believe you still had the gumption to get up this morning and run – it sounds like you’re doing really well with your training!

  2. We were supposed to have our 10 year highschool reunion last night but basically it was just “show up at the bar and talk”. I passed. Apparently 3 whole people showed up. IMO, Facebook has ruined the concept of high school reunions 🙁

    On an upbeat note, it looks like you and Mal had a great time. Happy Thanksgiving Tina! 🙂

  3. Looks like such a fun time! I haven’t been out of university for long, but my usual group of friends tends to have potluck dinners every so often and I love getting to see them again to catch up. Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving!

  4. your blog and a few others make me wish i liked beer! especially pumpkin beer. i sip my husband’s sometimes, but just can’t do it. but now i think i’ll try that winter warmer beer. i love all things seasonal!

  5. What a great tradition. That is so great that you are still so close with a bunch of your high school friends. I don’t think I keep in touch with more than 2 people from high school.

    Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful Tina!

  6. Way to go on the run this morning! I was totally not feeling mine but was sooo glad I went afterwards (it was freeeezing)! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!!

  7. I’ve never really been a fan of egg nog. I can tolerate it for a while but then it just becomes too thick for me. It’s weird. And yah for a good morning run! It helps make me feel a little less guilty about splurging after I’ve had a great run.

    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!!
