Ah, Thanksgiving morning. The day a runner gets up extra early, fuels and digests, downs some coffee, and heads out in running gear to shiver her way through a Turkey Trot or some such race. And so it was for me.
|This isn't AT ALL how I look when running a Thanksgiving race.|
The weather was fantastic, starting in the forties and rising. I got really hot after the first mile, which is quite different from last year. There were people running in ugly Christmas sweaters and elf and Santa outfits; I don't know how they did it. The race winds through a VERY hilly cemetery for miles two and three, so I was extremely proud of myself when I bettered my time.

Between this race and the 2015 Tryptophan Run sponsored by Vertical Runner of Hudson (which I ran today), I have a lot for which to be thankful. Running sometimes with my friends and sometimes alone at this fun, free event reminded me that I don't have to train for anything in particular to be a runner.

Thanks for enjoying the run with me, Peeps! Run Happy!
