Mia and I were invited to Bend, OR for Thanksgiving this year. Our friends Juston and Laurel had rented a house, and Laurel’s parents were flying in from West Virginia for a week too. There was no way we could say no. We’d received a 17lb turkey through our CSA (community supported agriculture) and it was going to be a tall order to finish something like that all by ourselves. Plus I think Juston just wanted Mia to make her chocolate cream pie, which she of course did.
The worst part of the whole drive down to Bend was the 50 minutes it took us just to get across Portland and onto 84 east. Once we hit 26 towards Hood things really weren’t all that bad.
Mia took dog duty with Codi on Thanksgiving morning while Juston, Laurel and I all ran the “I Like Pie” fun run. It was cold, windy and raining, with some pretty heavy rain right towards the end of our 5K.
After that it was hanging out at the rental house and eating…….pretty much the recipe for a great Thanksgiving.
Codi and Molly met each other too. After some initial barking, they got along really well.

Just have to give Juston and Laurel a HUGE THANK YOU for inviting us. We had a blast and will repay the favor in April during the half marathon.
Thanks for reading,
