Happy Thanksgiving!

I ran my 5k this morning and it was such an amazing experience. It was 40 degrees and foggy when I arrived. I wasn't thrilled with the temperature...



but after the race I was left with this feeling of accomplishment that I can't even begin to describe. It brought me to tears.



My chips stats were:

91 of 105 Age Group
1102 of 1311 overall
finish 36 minutes 32 seconds
average 12:25mi

Living at the beach did not give me the hill training I needed for this race, but I finished running, that was my main goal, and I did it!



Happy Turkey Day!
