This morning I participated in my local Turkey Trot. I ran the 10k last year. This year I did a 5K with my mother, sister, and 9 year old daughter and the 10K with my sister. The 5K I kept pace with my mother and daughter throughout the beginning (it was slow), and then I got to run off by myself for the last half. I finished in 41 minutes. Then immediately after, I ran the 10K with my sister. I finished in 1 hour 18 minutes, which is a minute longer than it took me last year. I felt like I was pushing myself harder last year. Then we walked a few more miles over to my sister's home. When I add it all up, it's almost a half marathon that I did this morning. My sister suggested we try two 10Ks next year.... maybe.
Oh... and I even was handed a pumpkin pie this year (they hand them out randomly)!! How fun!
This is my sister and I after the races.
