Turkey Trot!

There is no actual turkey to trot after, of course, but it is a very nice little event in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia.  Five miles (a two-loop course), very pretty area (this will give the flavor of the location).  Had hoped to run sub-10-minute miles, but really it was not meant to be: finished in more like 52:00, about 10:30 pace, but felt strong at the end and passed 10-15 people in the last five minutes (with a strong burst of asthmatic wheezing in accompaniment!).

Happy Thanksgiving!

5mi. Turkey Trot (52:00)

My Turkey Trot was so packed that there was no chance of running for a goal time! I think we ended up doing 35 minutes for a 5k.

2 loops course is boring but to pass 10/15 runners at the end means that you are in perfect shape. Well done!
Beautiful are to run through.
