Thnxgiving in Tally

It's been raining amazingly hard all day and all of last night. In fact, it started yesterday afternoon as I was driving back from Tallahassee.

I had spent Thanksgiving break in Florida with my cousins––just like last year––and it was a good time. Between running in the Tallahassee Turkey Trot (my 3rd time doing that... the first was long before last year), going to sporting events, and eating an obscene amount of food, I somehow had some downtime and was able to relax.

The race went well. I got a 21.13, which is my fastest for the event, and also for any 5k in general. So that was cool, although I still think the most enjoyable part of it may be going to east Krispy Kremes afterword, which is part of the tradition.We took our annual photo in front of the Krispy Kreme sign, but I don't have it yet, so that will have to wait. Here is one from the race though.

I once again went Black Friday shopping with my cousins, and once again, hardly bought anything. This year though we didn't go out nearly as early (8am as opposed to 4) which was really fine with me.

It was weird saying goodbye to everyone. It's not like I won't see them again or anything––I just probably won't be back for another Thanksgiving anytime soon. You never know though. It was a great and unexpected opportunity to be able to spend the last couple with them, and who knows what will happen in the next year.

The drive back, as I said was rainy, and also quite long due to ridiculous traffic south of Chattanooga. I somehow picked up a couple Bryan students in Tallahassee for the ride back though, so it was at least more interesting than doing it by myself.

They are saying it could snow tomorrow, which is kind of crazy.
