On Thanksgiving morning while all of you were sleeping in your warm beds and listening to the rain outside, Jessie and I drove down to Dana Point to run in the 31st annual 5k run also known as the Turkey Trot. We ran with some friends of mine from work. It was pouring rain while we stretched in a covered parking garage and lucky for us, stopped raining by the time the race started. Jessie took off and I never saw her again except for when the route doubled backed. She did well and averaged an 8 minute mile. She placed 23rd out of 112 women in her age group(16-19) and 78th overall out of 1251 women. WOW!!!. I did ok averaging about a 8:45 mile. I placed 39th out of 147 men in my age group (35-39) and 436th out of 1152 total men. We had a lot of fun and are looking forward to the next race. Any of you want to join us??? A 5k is only 3.2 miles. Piece of cake, right? See you all later.
