Happy Canadian Thankgiving and Steamtown Marathon Quick Report

First of all Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadians blogger friends.  Hope you are relaxing and enjoying the holiday!  I am cooking a turkey dinner today for my mom and sister (she came home from Nashville to visit!).  Great for active recovery!

Despite a recent post about losing my mojo,  I surprised myself with a small PB yesterday at Steamtown.  I finally felt like I had some kick in my legs and ran my first ever NEGATIVE split marathon.
Time - 4:08:54 (a 26 second PB).  Given that this was a training run,  and I was doubting even a 4:30 finish,  I am very pleased with this result.

Full report to come. Major congratulations to all the marathon runners out there this weekend,  there were a ton of great results,  and I look forward to reading your reports.

Now you'll have to excuse me,  I have a turkey to stuff and get in the oven and an apple crisp to bake.  Have a great Monday!
