5K Turkey Trot

Well, I did it!

Done and done.

The weather was cold, only about 15 degrees. But it was snowing and the road was hard and a bit slippery at times! But, on the flipside.... there wasn't any wind. Which is a good thing!

The organization of the race start and finish was a complete mess. I didn't start my watch until I got to the start line... and the finish line was jamned with runners. Just crazy.

Overall, I beat my time from last year by 4 seconds.....and I think I might have enjoyed it!

Happy Thanksgiving y'all!
