No post yesterday, busy being thankful with loved ones. Did the 122nd Buffalo Turkey Trot. So this is what it feels like to simply enjoy it, went into it w/o expectations, still recovering from the NYC Marathon, just to have fun and run hard, it’s been more intense in the past going for wins and such…We got a bit of a late start to the race, got stuck in what probably was the heaviest traffic of the year, a rarely seen stop and go traffic in Buffalo.
The 8k race went surprisingly well for me, finished in 28:23, a 5:43/mile pace, 46th overall, 2nd masters finisher, I’ll take it!! Started off conservatively on a cold morning, then picked up the pace as much as I felt comfortable, passed runners along the way, smiled across the finish line.
What a year, what a day, definitely a season to be thankful!
Today really is the start of the off-season for me, I’m having left-overs, beer, and taking a day or two off. Yahooooo!!
