Turkey Trot 2012 & Out Run CF

This past Saturday, I ran my fourth 5k - the local Turkey Trot! I cannot believe that I have run four 5k races since June! I am so proud of myself for surpassing my goal of running one.
We had excellent weather for our Turkey Trot on Saturday morning. It was very sunny, no wind and probably about 45 degrees by the time the race started -- much better than I thought it was going to be when I first signed up for it. I finished 5th in my age division (18-24) with a time of 32:37 - that's my best time yet! Here are a few pictures from the event:
My kindergarten teacher friend, Natalie, and I.
This was her first 5k and she finished in under 30 minutes!

Gotta show my CF love & support with my
Out Run CF shirt! :)

I also won a turkey! There was a raffle
at the end of the race and I won a 14.4lb turkey!
I'm planning on this being my last run for the year. I'll try to pick back up again in the spring when it's warm enough to start running outside again because I've really enjoyed the past 5-6 months. My focus right now is maintaining my treatment compliance (259 days and counting!), gaining a little weight, and staying healthy this winter. I'm also going to focus on having more blog posts that don't have to do with running! :-)



  1. Yay, you continue to impress me. Congrats on winning the turkey! It will help replenish the calories you burned by running :)

    1. Thanks, Inhaling Hope! :) That's a wonderful way to look at the turkey - all those extra calories. My husband is going to make it Thursday morning and we're going to take it up to share with my parents and brothers.

    2. Sounds perfect. Have a great Thanksgiving!!

  2. Very impressive cyster!!! Enjoy that turkey!

    1. Thanks, John! I hope you're enjoying your new role as daddy! Your daughter is adorable! And I hope Maria starts feeling better as well. Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving.
