Thanksgiving was missing Robin this year. Robby was working and couldn't make it up, but the rest of the Reynolds/Tang family came to our house for dinner. We started the day a little earlier than usual. Corey and Patrice went for a run in the mid-morning and the rest of the crew went to a nearby park and played a little two hand touch football. Team Valentine emerged as the victors... there is sure to be a round 2 next year.
Sunday after Thanksgiving, Patrice, Peg and Corey decided to run in the Seattle Marathon. Peg and Corey both ran the 1/2 marathon and Patrice ran the full marathon. She took 12 minutes off her Bellingham Bay Marathon time and was really pleased with the race. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate for this race either. It rained on Patrice the entire race and got pretty windy towards the end of the race. The Seattle marathon also ends with about 8 miles of hills... It was a great experience, but I am glad it is behind me now.
