Turkey Trot 10K

Monday, November 26, 2012

It was a chilly, chilly, windy morning, uggghh, not so perfect running conditions, but wanted to start the day with a calorie deficit, lol.

Had to do my famous race pose, which really means...hurry up and take the pic dear :)


A sea of people, I've never seen so many at a local race.

And we're off, Hi honey, I'll see ya in six miles.....

I ran my heart out, I wanted a new PR and I just knew today was going to be the day, it had to be...no more 10K's on the schedule for a long time, so RUN LISA RUN.


Great race, I did my best, but I missed it by 20 seconds, awwwhhh shucks. Enjoyed a great holiday weekend with the family afterwards.

I want to give a shout out to my Granddaughter who ran the Turkey Trot 5K in Burgettstown, PA - AWESOME job on your medal. She finished second place in her age group (13) and a big Woo Hoo to my SIL Dan who finished his best 5K time ever. I love that running has become a part of our family.

Running happy and on Week 2 of Marathon Training, gotta run yall.

    How did I miss this??? You are the best in my book girlie! You look good and I'm sure you did awesome! Marathon training?!?!? Yikes! I just need to get my first 5K under my belt this weekend with the Ugly Sweater Run. All my "virtual" 5Ks on the NordicTrack may not compare! I'm nervous, but I'll be thinking of you while I'm running.

    As always, YOU ROCK!!! emoticon

    It's hard to PR in that sea of people! I'd love to do a turkey trot someday . . . but it's an hour & a half drive each way for us on thanksgiving so it's just easier to run on my own . . . which I did.

    I missed "running" the Turkey Trot in a local town cause my running partner (sister) went out of town. There is just something about the excitement of it all but I did run/walk the 5 mile route on my treadmill, just no T-shirt.

    Good luck on the training.

    You look great in those pictures. Who cares about a PR on Thanksgiving? Running and doing something healthy to start out the day is what counts. Yay for you!
