The tradition continued this year and I started my Thanksgiving with a 5K run over the Ringling bridge at the 2015 ALSO Youth Turkey Trot. This year my boyfriend ran it with me.
This year my pace was a bit slower…it certainly didn’t feel that way. We finished in 36:02, which is almost three minutes slower than last year. I was really tired though. We had gone to the Tampa Bay Lightning game the night before, so I don’t think that helped the running.
Other than that, I thought that race went well. Especially because I’ve done it a couple of times now, I know the course and I can tell how far I’ve gone and what I have left. That alone makes it better.
Now I’m off to focus on the remaining races of the year.
