Turkey Trot

Thursday, November 28, 2013

So, this morning I signed up to do my towns first turkey trot. I went back and forth on if I would just walk or if I would start C25K week 2, since I wrapped up week 1 on Wed night.

I arrived at the place of trotting this morning, pretty well bundled up since it was about 30 degrees outside. Everyone looked like runners.. all physically fit and such, and I began to wonder if this wasn't a run/walk but a run. YIKES. Long story short... I decided to wog... not doing C25K, because that would only last about 20 min. So, I started off jogging and DID see people walking (good to know!)

Now, my goal for this was to finish in 45 minutes. I honestly didn't know if I could do it. So this morning I can't say I wogged half of the 5K, but it had to have been pretty close. And when I came into the finish, I was SUPER pleased to have a time of 43:02!!! Two minutes shorter than my goal! WooHoo! I'm very excited now, and feel much more confident about moving on to week 2 of C25K. And I'm VERY excited about the 5K in Windcrest in two weeks. If any of you are local, I encourage you to sign up! Windcrest is known for their Christmas lights, and this run will take place in the evening through the lights! VERY exciting! I posted more info on this run on our San Antonio team page!

    Congrats! That's awesome!!! Where was the Turkey Trot at? Originally I think my dad and stepmom were going to do one and they were going to tell me which one, but then they never signed up so it didn't happen. I'm still thinking hard about the Wincrest one!

    How exciting. I'm impressed at how many of these runs you do. I'm just not there yet. Maybe someday, but think I'll continue to walk inside at home. emoticon
