Do you have a race in your city on Thanksgiving day? There's one Detroit sponsored by the Parade Company that runs the route of the Detroit Thanksgiving Day Parade. This was the first race I ran, six years ago, and I've never been back.
This year one of my friends, a self-described "slow and old runner", is going to do the Turkey Trot 10K on Thanksgiving morning. And I am registering today so I can run it with her.
This race is one of the largest races in Michigan. They get quite the turnout, something like 20,000 runners. I'm not looking forward to the mess of parking and getting down there but I'll figure something out. I might be able to meet my friend somewhere on the way so we can all carpool together.
Husband's got the boys that morning and I think if the timing is right I should be home with plenty of time to shower and play with the guys until we have to head to his aunt's house for dinner.
I figure if you run a 10K on Thanksgiving that entitles you to an extra slice of pie. Amiright?
Because I'm doing the Turkey Trot this month I'm going to count the Superhero 5K, which happened right at the beginning of this month, as an October race. So my goal of a race a month started in October. That means I've got to run a race a month all the way through October 2014. I can do this!
