Turkey Trot

On Thursday morning Matthew and I completed the 5 mile Turkey Trot. We arrived early to pick up our packets and pin on our race numbers. Up until this one we never had timing chips so I don’t remember how we did previously. This time we took it real easy. Matthew was concerned about his legs and ankles. He said that last year he sped up near the end too soon. So we ran at about 12 minute/mile pace. From previous years I didn’t remember the number of rolling hills that this course includes. However, we both remember the final hill right near the finish. We stuck together and crossed in 58:35. Later we went to the Kathy and Ken F’s for a very nice Thanksgiving dinner. I give thanks to my son Matthew who shared this with me. No one else in my family has ever run with me and that is very special to me. Thanks Matthew!
Update: I dug up my old race numbers and on the back were our times.
