The next morning, I headed to the Lawrence river trails for my coldest run of the trip with Jennifer. She was injured and dropped out early, but I got to finish with Grant, one of the owners of Ad Astra. I enjoyed getting to know him, and we both warmed up easily with the woods blocking most of the wind.
We all met back at Ad Astra, where our friend Susie was wrapping up the morning shift. Mikey joined Jennifer, Susie and me for lunch before heading to my sister's house in Shawnee for the rest of our visit. We celebrated with my sister and brother-in-law's family that evening with Mexican (our former Thanksgiving tradition) and Harry Potter Scene It, which Mikey and I won. If you know my nephew, Alex, that's quite the feat!
I had planned to run at my old home trails in Swope Park the next morning with several Trail Nerds, but we all decided to abandon that plan when we awoke to 0 degrees Fahrenheit. I'd run in that cold once before, and although it was fun, I had paid a little for it in the following days. We all met for coffee instead, and I meant to take a group photo but forgot!
We took my nephew shopping that afternoon before he had to fly back to D.C. and then met our good friend Marilyn for a short visit at her office.
