Three Things Thursday

1. Last Monday I shared a photo that I entered for a Racing With Babes giveaway. Lucky for me, T agreed that my submission was the best and selected me as a winnerThank you!! Here are some of the out-takes and getting-ready photos that hubs took in the process - this was no simple task!


 



2. Last night during our group run I had some familiar twinges around my right knee, and it seemed to be aggravated on each of the uphills. It was pretty uncomfortable toward the end of our 10K. I'll stick to shorter runs for a couple of days and continue my stretching in the hopes that it gets better.


3. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends south of the border. I'm thinking I should have taken the day off in solidarity, as lindsay likes to do on our Canadian holidays. Have some turkey for me please! So does this mean you all get a 4-day weekend? If so, your Thanksgiving is way better than ours!

I think us Canadians should definitely follow Lindsay's lead :)

i love me some Canada...but a 4 day holiday weekend we NEED.
knee pain is weird..I had the same sort of thing awhile back...and they never really figured it out. It doesn't hurt to run anymore but I just don't have the same flexibility with it.
Bodies = weird

Congrats on winning!

Congrats on winning! Looks like a fun time taking the pics! Knee pain sucks, I really hope it goes away for you soon. At least you are still able to run, even if it's shorter distances.

Jill said...

I actually get a 5 day weekend, you know....working in the school district and all. :)

Love your winnings, you so ROCK! Though I'm still jealous. Ha.

Happy Thursday!

Yeah 5 day weekend for me too!
And you totally deserved to win that award!

Carly said...

Congrats on the win! I am enjoying a 4 day weekend. I hope your knee pain is nothing too serious.

J said...

I love the pictures of you getting ready with all the lights! That was such a good idea! Hope your knee feels better soon! And yes I have today and tomorrow off for thanksgiving, but we really don't get too many days off during the year so its nice to have a few days off at least.

OK that photo with the lights, but you can't see you made me laugh out loud. Happy t'giving from the US.

lindsay said...

LOL I'm becoming more famous in Canada!! You can take the day off - I give you permission. Tomorrow is another national holiday where crazy people storm the mall. I don't participate in that one but I do help myself to not-working :) Yes--4-day weekend. If only every weekend was like that...

Have some pie and take the day off, I insist!

Oh yes and I love the Xmas light pics. I am typing via phone again so I forgot to start my three things Thcomment :( I'm sorry

Congrats on the contest win! Yes, we do get a 4 day weekend, so I think it's only right that you get to take some time off too!

Char said...

Aaaah, stupid knee! Keep stretching. Hopefully it will come right really quickly.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Wifey said...

Sending you Happy Turkey Day wishes, too!

Thanks for the holiday shout-out!! :) It typically is a LONG weekend, but not for this chick. We traveled before, and stuck around here for the actual day.

Hope you had a good weekend up North ;) xo
