I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. I started the day with the Lifetime Turkey trot in downtown Minneapolis. It was my first race since the Twin Cities 10 mile. It was also special because my oldest son ran it as well. There were a lot of people running and a lot of them dressed in costumes. It was a little chilly 28 degrees but once we started running it was fine. I asked Ryan if he wanted to run together he said we will see. We started out together but I slowly pulled ahead. I felt good no back or shoulder problems. This race is not a fast race because of the crowds and most of the people are out for fun, walkers or people just trying their first 5K. To help me going I set goals on passing certain people and then my final goal was not to let the two people dressed at drumsticks being chased by two others with giant knifes and forks beat me. I'm happy to say I succeeded. I felt so good I was able to put a nice kick on the final K as well. In no way was my time a PR but it was a fun run and felt great to be back out there after the injuries I have had this fall. I waited for my son and soon he appeared. He was very happy with his time. Telling me he ran a consistent pace most of the race. I also think that he is starting to get the bug and had fun running in a big crowd.
