Turkey day 2011


The idea of winning a pie was motivation enough to get me outta a warm house and into a 32 degree car to drive 30 minutes and run. Dubbed as the oldest Iowa road race the 47th annual Turkey Trot is held at the Iowa state fair grounds. The morning was cool, crisp and sunny. The mild weather brought out many same day registrants. So many that the race was delayed 15 minutes. 5 laps and a new pr later (48:39) I was done. I was hoping for a pie, but didn’t finish high enough. 20111124-230219.jpg


Here in Iowa

So we made it out to Iowa for thanksgiving and I need to run because I know that this weekend will be filled with over sized portions and high calories foods!!!
