Haven't gotten a ride in since Turkey Day. We were at my BILs house in Atlanta and I didn't bring a bike. Just lots of food and booze. Hopefully I'll get a commute in tomorrow. Most of the groups have shut down until the spring. Eventually I'll get my mountain bike recabled and will at least be enjoying the trails for a bit

My Thanksgiving was a bit different. Just a small family gathering. No alcohol, since my Mom and daughter (and her fiancé) would find our drinking uncomfortable. I'm sensitive to how they'd react, so we abstained. I also avoided the desserts and only ate a normal portion. No seconds and no late snacking. This kind of bland living suits my personality...

Yeah, it was a fun read. I had already been running barefoot before I read it though. I've got a couple pairs of five fingers I wear around this time of year when it starts getting colder, but usually just casual wear. Since relearning to run barefoot I really have a tough time running in anything now lol.

Here is a couple pics from the race on Thanksgiving.

I was a bit overdressed actually, was a bit warmer that morning that I thought it would and I wasn't really used to these fall temperatures yet. Should have left the long sleeve and tights off. I was pretty surprised others actually had hats and gloves on too. I had em with me but left those in the car.
