Rain or Shine!

Yesterday for Thanksgiving Day, we joined 6000+ others for Father Joe’s Turkey Trot in San Diego – a 5K walk/run to benefit the homeless.  We had a great time despite the rain!

Usually sunny San Diego was wet and cold as the rain sometimes sprinkled but mostly came steadily down, with an occasional pelting!  The kids were troopers and stayed mostly dry inside the stroller.  We didn’t make record time or anything – 45 minutes and that was even with cutting 2 corners.  (Yes I admit we didn’t complete the whole race because our kids we’re saying “We want out!”)  So we probably burned like half a bite of pumpkin pie – ha! 

My brother-in-law says there’s no such thing as bad weather.  Only bad attitudes and bad preparation.  So we put on raincoats and did the walk with smiles on our faces.  It was a great memory!

So get out there this weekend and do something active moms!  (in addition to standing in line at the mall!)
