I didn't end up signing up for the race I was going to do with my family - my sister decided she didn't want to spend the money. So instead my aunt and I did our own 5K today at a beautiful park area, made even better since Huckleberry was able to run along with us. I ran/walked, and beat my old time by about four minutes! :)
Gobble Wobble Turkey Trot official time: 45:45

I'm doing a real 5k, an Up & At'em Turkey Trot, on Thanksgiving morning (my first real 5k). I'm also signed up on the virtual board for the week of 11/20-26/2011. I'm ready for 2nd monthly 5k...I want to see by how much I can beat my previous time!!!

I don't know if SP is going to "host" another virtual race the week of Thanksgiving, like they did with the Trick or Treat Trot, but there's no reason we can't do it on our own.
I'm doing a Gobble Wobble 5K the Saturday after Thanksgiving with my sister and my aunt, and would love you to join me! Let's get a nice big group going like we did before, and help one another set new, faster personal best times!
Post here if you're with me - let us know if you'll be doing a real race along with our virtual one. And be sure to include the length and your goal re: running, run/walk, walking the race.
