Friday 5: The last week in November



We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. This edition of the Friday 5 is a mix of things from this last week in November.

1.  Earlier this week my sister and I and a friend were considering running a Turkey Trot on Thursday but then at the last minute we all decided that we were going to pass.  My reason for passing was because I just wanted to sleep in. I didn't end up sleeping in but still glad we didn't run because it did end up raining for a bit that morning.  Maybe one year I'll actually do a Turkey Trot.


2. Our other friend actually did get up to do a a Turkey Trot and he won first in his AG and won this trophy! Isn't that cool?  Who else ran on Thursday?




3. I actually had an awesome run this past weekend. The weather was gorgeous, as was the run. I was actually in shorts and a t-shirt and felt I was over dressed! The leaves were falling off the trees as I was running beneath them and I loved hearing the crunching sound under my feet. There was even actually a smell of fall in the air.  I hadn't ran since my race, which was the first weekend in November, so I had been missing out on all this "fall" running!  Do you know what I mean what I say it smells like fall?


4.  Have you decorate your tree yet?  Lacey got this cool Runner Ornament from a company called Personal Creations and I know it will be the first ornament she puts on. If you are looking for some great gift ideas for ANYONE I would highly suggested checking out Personal Creations because they have more than just ornaments. They have blankets, holiday and home decor, and just about anything else. I just got on the site last night and I see they are having a HUGE black Friday sale. Seriously check them out. 



5. Have you started purchasing gifts yet?  I actually received this Runner Crate last week and after checking it out I do believe it would make a fun gift for a runner friend. I think it would make a great exchange gift if you are doing a gift exchange with someone from your running group. The crate I received was jam packed with running goodies including a thermal mug, a variety of organic snacks, a cold pack, blister shields, and much more.

    1. I know that's what I thought. That is a pretty cool trophy for a Turkey Trot. He was in Florida to run that, so the cold weather was not an issue at all.

  5. I've given that ornament to my running buddy (in brunette). That is one cool trophy. Would love to win one some day.

    I did 2 turkey trots yesterday so I could eat twice as much LOL.

    1. I ordered the Blonde one but somehow received the Brunette. Great job on your two races. My kind of thinking, more running=more eating.

  6. I love those crunchy leaf runs. I know exactly what you mean by smelling Fall! I actually talked about it a couple of times because it came so late this year. Our Turkey Burner was the Saturday before Thanksgiving as it collects food for the food bank. But, I think it would be more fun on the actual day. Thanks for the linkup.

  7. That Runner's Crate looks like it offers a great mix of stuff - how fun! I did run yesterday, but no official turkey trots...I'm like you, I like to sleep in :) Thanks for the link-up!

  8. I need to check out Runner Crate, I've heard of it before but never checked it out. I think it would be a good gift for me. :)

  9. I did do a turkey trot - it was fun and I set a new PR! Love that you ladies have kept the FF going :)

  10. I can understand passing on the Turkey Trot. Every year I think about doing my local 5k parkrun that happens on Christmas Day or the local Boxing Day 5k (day after Christmas) and every year I pass!

  11. I ran on Wednesday instead of running yesterday, and it was great weather. The weather yesterday was great too, but I wanted to sleep in, and take my time waking up.

  12. I do a local 6K on Thanksgiving morning - it's always a great time, and a wonderful way to start the day.

    That ornament is adorable! I need to get one like it!

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  13. I love Personal Creations! I get an ornament from them every year. :)

    Turkey Trots are fun. I highly recommend them. :)

  14. I didn't run my normal Turkey Trot yesterday either, but I might have done it for that awesome turkey trophy! That Runner Crate looks very cool. I recently found out about Stride Box and been thinking of trying it. Thanks as always for hosting!!

  15. I definitely know what you mean by it smelling like fall. :) I am glad you got to enjoy a weekend fall run. I have actually never run a turkey trot!

  16. No Turkey Trot for me, but I would love to do it one day... if I am in the US for Thanksgiving. No Turkey Trots in France but I think it is a great way of reminding people to get out and move rather than being in an all day food coma.
