2013 Turkey Trot 5K

After I posted on Wednesday that I didn't expect much from Thursday's 5K, I went out and surprised myself and my legs by running a new PR (by 2 seconds) of 26:33.

Afterward, seeing how narrowly I'd beat last year's PR, I kinda kicked myself for not really pushing it in that 3rd mile and earning a significant PR.  Doesn't matter.  I was pleased with what I did.  Leading up to the race, I actually wasn't sure if I'd even be able to pull off a 30 minute 5K (my legs were still achin' something serious from that fall).

Here's the kids and I after the race; they were all about the cookies:

For my effort, I was really sore on Friday, but thankfully, by yesterday, my legs seemed fully recovered from both the fall and the race.  And, yesterday was day #335 in the streak: Exactly 30 days until I can celebrate my 1 year streak-versary!

And here I am calling my 2013 running season over. You continue to kick so much ass. It's amazing how well you can race when you erase expectations. Cheers!

nice PR! I'll take 2 seconds any way I could find them. Good job!

Nicely done! I can't remember the last time I PR'd, so I'm impressed by any amount.

That's so funny that you PR'ed when you were expecting to run it in 30 minutes because the same thing happened to me! It was 18 degrees at the start of the race so I decided to give myself a free pass and "casually run it, no pressure." Crossed the finish line at 24:37 still expecting for my time to be around 30! (I didn't wear my watch)

It was a happy thanksgiving indeed! :)
