Virginia Run Turkey Trot 5K

November 26th, 2004

I got up early this morning and ran the Virginia Run Turkey Trot 5K with Julie, Manda, and a couple of others from my old run site. For the past three years I’ve talked about doing one of the Turkey Trot/Thanksgiving runs and I’ve never gotten my ass in gear to do so. So of course, the year I finally did… it rained. It didn’t start raining until everyone started lining up and then rained on us for the entire first mile. Ugh. (If I’d known it was going to rain I’d have put on some bodyglide. Ow, ow, ow.)

Still, even taking it easy and accounting for slowing down for the rain (I didn’t have a hat so my glasses were covered, which means I can’t see where I’m going and have to be careful) I lopped off a couple of minutes from my old 5K PR, so that was nice. (Now I’m eyeing a 5K in December to see what would happen if I really push it.)
