Thinking about signing up for this year’s Turkey Trot. Not sure what stops me from committing to it. There’s nothing to lose, I’m up that early usually anyways, and it’s local, so… Sounds like a great way to start a Thanksgiving day and Holiday Season though :).

My goal is to finish a 5k in 45 minutes. I’ve been focusing on completing a 15 min mile, which isn’t so fast, but is getting me up to speed to reach my goal. I don’t enjoy long distance running, so I walk fast for most of the time, and throw in a few running minutes. I’ve learned that I have to do what works for my body and spirit and what brings me joy, and not try to make myself believe that I have to be a marathon runner. So much more fun that way!!
I found a 5k to sign up for. I wish they were free, but I get having to charge for them. The race is to raise funds and awareness to prevent strokes. It’s close to home so I could walk there, and it’s on a weekend, so there really isn’t any reason to not do it. I haven’t 100% decided to sign up yet, so I’ll wait to put the money down, but I am starting to research 5 k self training programs.
