QT: So Much for Which to be Thankful


Next week is Thanksgiving, at least here in the States, and as such, I thought today might be a good day to talk about some things I’m thankful for.

I don’t know about you, but I feel like the whole “actual being thankful” part of Thanksgiving gets a pretty short shift these days.

Sure, I think most of us at least give a passing thought to being thankful for our friends/family.

But for a lot of folks, myself more included than I’d like to admit, Thanksgiving is as much about watching football and eating all the things as it is about taking a moment being truly thankful for the many blessings in my life.

So I’m going to do that today, and hopefully, make a point of doing so on Turkey Day as well. Read more

QT: Walking the Food Tight Rope this Holiday Season

QT: Thanksgiving, Running, and Eating All the Food


Is it just me, or have the number of Turkey Trots/Thanksgiving themed races increased in the past few years? 

Before I started running regularly I admittedly didn’t pay much attention to these type of runs so maybe I just missed them.

That said, it seems like more and more people (runners and non-runners alike) are participating in a run on Thanksgiving morning before eating all of the food.

And if you do, here are a few things to keep in mind… Read more

Thanksgiving Reminders…

For the Americans in the audience, you know what tomorrow is.

For those of you from somewhere else in the world, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in America.

Also known as the day that we take our collective gluttonous ways to a whole new level.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Our Spread Will Be Double This.
At Least.

All across America tomorrow, people will be bellying up to the dinner table and by they time the meal is over their bellies will have pushed them back an inch or two.

And in all honesty, I’m ok with it.


Look, at the end of the day, the things that we eat absolutely impact our how we are able to run.

The more we weigh, the more pounding our bodies take with each step and the more effort is required to move us from point A to point B.

But on special occasions, and major holidays can absolutely count as special occasions, it’s ok to over indulge.

That said, here are 3 things to keep in mind for those of you that will be feasting this year.
