Turkeyman Turkey Trot

What better way to spend a bright and early Thanksgiving Day morning than outside, in 40-degree temperatures running with a thousand other crazies? On Thursday, I ran my second “race,” and it was great. I love the feeling after finishing, even though it’s only 3.1 miles; it just feels like such an accomplishment. The course went through downtown Lansing streets, past the capitol Christmas tree, the rain held off and it was awesome. I ran with a friend and her husband and it was nice to have someone to chat with through the course. Rex was the gracious “stuff” holder and honorary picture taker; he’s such an awesome guy. I’m so lucky and thankful to have him. Who else would get up at 7:30, drive me in, stand in the freezing cold and cheer me on? Well, besides my parents that is. ☺ They came out to cheer us on too, all in all a fun little race, I’m already looking forward to next year…

Time: 33 minutes, 14 seconds
