Thanksgiving cook/8K Runner
OK. So I've been on a big-time fitness kick for the past 5 months. Exercising all the time, including running 5Ks every weekend. I'm signed up for an 8K (5 miles) on Thanksgiving morning, but I'm responsible for cooking the meal. I'm an early riser, so no problem at all waking up at 4 or 5 AM. But from about 8AM - 10AM, I'll be AWOL. Any thoughts about preparation? Can I make the stuffing the night before? What else can I do in advance? I just don't want to get caught short.
