I run a 10K on Thanksgiving morning with a good friend of mine. The temps were in the 20’s but the day was sunny and no wind. As a side note, this was a vast improvement over last year when we had an ice storm the night previous and the wind chills were in the single digits. My husband, two boys and parents were there to cheer us on.
Our goal was to be under one hour. Well all in all we had a great race! We walked periodically so we had energy for a killer hill at the end. I struggled a little with an upset stomach but nothing too major. We finished with a time of 57 minutes…five minutes better than last year. Plus we had a great time and of course no guilt with the pig out later that day.
