Turkey Trot 10k


This is the same Ridge Runners Turkey Trot that I did last year with Marty. Check out the previous race recapĀ here!I decided to dress up in the same garb as last year – my turkey feather tights, my homemade turkey shirt, and my tutu. I got a lot of compliments on my outfit, and I was best dressed! LOL!Madre also ran the race this year. She did awesome! She finished in 1:30:08, with an overall pace of 14:33! Her fastest time ever, and her fastest pace ever! Go Madre!!!!
Now she has an awesome time to submit for Disney Princess Weekend in February.

I also did really well despite the fact that this race was through a neighborhood and was very hilly. VERY HILLY. I had my RunKeeper set to 3:15-45 intervals, which I kept for a few rounds, but eventually had to walk a bit more up the hills. I probably should have stuck to 3-1, but it is ok, I finished with an overall pace of 10:17! That is pretty fast for me! I finished in 1:03:44, with is 6 minutes, 5 seconds faster than the same race last year! This was a PR for me! Maybe next year I can get it under 1 hour…!

The race was well organized and the course was clearly marked, with supporters cheering along the way. The only downsides were that there was no finisher’s ribbon like last year, and I didn’t win a raffle. Oh well.
