Thanksgiving Day Race!!

Sunday, December 01, 2013

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day!
Can you believe it's December already?! I can't wait until it snows!

This past Thanksgiving morning, I walked (and also jogged a little bit at the end) the Manchester Road Race. This has been something I've always wanted to do, but of course I would say, maybe next year... when I've lost weight.

So I decided to quit that excuse and signed up for it this year, and I'm so glad I did!
The race is 4.748 miles and I finished with a time of 1 hour and 37 minutes.
The only bad part about this race was that I didn't really train for it, so for the past couple of days I was a tad sore in the legs, but it seems to have gone away now!
It felt so long while walking it! I couldn't help but think, where's the finish line?
But now that I know what it's like, I know what to expect next year.
It'll definitely become a tradition for Thanksgiving.
I recommend a race to everyone; it's so much fun and especially seeing people of all different shapes and sizes walking/jogging/running; it's inspiring.

You can do it!

Who knows, maybe there'll be a half-marathon in my future!
