Sometimes I get the feeling that Thanksgiving is just a fall Mardis Gras where some people think they can
go crazy and just eat until they’re stuffed. In fact I think I remember a Friends episode where Joey wore maternity pants on Thanksgiving to “have room.”
But really I encourage you to view Thanksgiving as a themed meal. Wah-wah, I know it sounds boring, but your body will thank you. I also encourage you to exercise in the early morning, and eat well portioned meals later on.
I’ll be running a 4 mile race Thanksgiving morning, and I’m honestly looking forward to it. Runs on Thanksgiving always have such fun spirit to them, plus it gives me more energy to handle the day ahead!
Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!
