Turkey Trot 4 miler, Aurora Farms Outlet
Well, got it done today and it felt good! I realized looking at my blog that I have done this race every year since 2012, but didn’t do it last year due to my plantar fasciitis. I was pretty happy with my time too. I came in at 42:39 with a 10:40 average time per mile. It is not a PR, but hey, at least I could run it this year (thanks to my shoe inserts)!
Here are some strangers with awesome hats that let me take their pic. Note to self – next year I have to get a hat!!
The temperature this morning was in the lower 40’s with a little bit of wind. The prediction was for rain and the roads were all wet. I dressed for rain and borrowed Mike’s rain jacket which proved to be a mistake. I had on long running tights, layered a short sleeved shirt and my long sleeved shirt and then the jacket. I also wore an ear warmer, and mittens. I totally overdressed. My mile 1 I had shed the mittens, headwarmer and unzipped the jacket. My mile 2 I shed the jacket and wore it around my waist. The other challenge today was my glasses! They kept fogging up and that was a big pain. I’ll have to do some research on what to do to prevent this.
This race is always a very well run race and lots of fun!
