I'm pretty sure Thanksgiving is not complete with out a Ride & Tie race. Fast B and I showed up to cold temps and found Colleen and Beth trying to stay warm, along with this rabbit.

The ride & tie is a 12 mile race where a team of two has one mountain bike. You leap frog by running/biking. The fastest time doesn't necessarily win - there's a catch. You collect stuffed animals, pinatas, etc. along the way. Each deducts from your overall time.

I can still picture Fast B running in front of me as I'm trying to remember how to shift gears on the mountain bike. He had a pinata attached to his back and a big teddy bear flopping around on his shoulder. I was laughing so hard I had to hop off the bike and push it up the hill.

At the end we got some awesome sombreros and Turkeys.

The rest of the day was spent with family and friends. Laughing and eating. I have so much to be thankful for.

We ended the day here.
