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 finished the Stuffing Strut in 46:33. Not as good as my training led me to believe I'd do, but 12 minutes faster than the 5K I did this summer 30 pounds heavier. AND - last time I felt like I was going to die with the 58 min 5K, but I felt great after today. Woo hoo.
I'm in...I'll be walking the 5K either outdoors on my own or on the treadmill. Here in NY, we may have snow by then, ugh, and I don't do much walking outdoors if it's icy. Anyway, my goal is anything under an hour. Is there a special goodie award for the slowest, lol?
So, does this mean we're "Gobbly Wobblies"?

I just signed up too! I'm so excited. I've been slacking so bad lately. I signed up for the Run/Walk 5k, I have walked 5k's before but never run one. Lately I haven't even been getting my cardio in, so this should be great. Thanks for letting me know!
Yep, I'm with you! :) I was hoping that there was one coming up, I like to have a nice goal in mind. I am currently doing a challenge where I am doing 60 minutes of fitness for the last 60 days of the year... I am on day 7 and rocking it! WOOT!
So yes... I am going to run/walk the race and beat my previous time of 56 minutes. I can do this! :)

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.
