Today was a perfect Thanksgiving Day for a 5 mile race. The weather couldn't have been better. We had clear sunny skies, cool 40 degree temperatures, and some light winds for the race. The course had some rollers as it weaved around the downtown area.
Pumpkin pies were given to the top 50 males and top 50 females. My goal was to come home with a pumpkin pie.
At the start line of the race we had the couch potatoes guys, two Elvis sightings, and a couple business guys dressed in their suit and tie and carrying in one hand a brief case and a turkey leg in the other. The smell of the leg was good but I didn't want to get hungry so I stayed out of the path of the wafting smell.
The run went well and I finished strong with a PR of over 8 years in a time of 28:50 and a pumpkin pie to boot.
I have to admit I am thankful for the strength and endurance I've gained this year and that my training and racing has gone so well.
