Since this blog is basically just a pile of race reports I thought I'd make a quick note about Runacopia 5k that I did on Thankgiving.
I'll just paste in my log notes to keep it brief:
felt like garbage on warm up jog downtown. questioned racing entirely but not before I could register myself. did a few strides felt just a bit better. race was pretty non descript just paved paths, streets, bark path, one tiny hill and a bunch of turns all over the place. few faster guys so I wasn't alone on a time trial but there was little changing of places. I was able to surge at the end as I was just starting to settle in to the pace with only .75 mile left. kind of an off day but fun and a PR at a distance that i've never had a solid go at (still room for lots of time shaving!). cooled down with Mac in the park. said happy thanksgiving a bunch of times to a bunch of people then jogged home.

cool to see all the people out having fun (costumes, kids, runner types, non-runners, strollers, old, young, etc.)
Later that day I ate my heart out. Not a ton of any one dish but there were so many dishes it all added up. Thanksgiving is such a cool holiday. I hope yours was special too! Thanks for reading and being so damn awesome!
