I did my first race ever today. A 5k. I finished at 36:51 and GPS said 3.15 so my pace was 11:45. It's my longest run in months!

Hope all the other racers had fun!

Hey princesses! Happy thanksgiving!!!


Finished my first 10k today. 1:08:20. I wanted to stay under an hour 10. I can't believe I did it!!! It also was about 75 out. It felt like 90! I bet if it were cooler I could've shaved a few mins regardless I am so happy!

Hope all of you who participated in a turkey trot did wonderfully! Now go reward yourselves with turkey and pie. We deserve it! Xo

I did a turkey trot this morning. PR of 37:45. I was so trying to get under 38. There were over 600 runners. Absolutely crazy and wonderful all at the same time. Btw. DD finished 30:30.

Congratulations to all!! What a great, healthy way to start out the holidays!

Ran a virtual 5k turkey trot this morning before heading over to the family's. My legs went to lead around mile 1.5 and it was all I had to make it through. And what do you know? I PR'd with 37 minutes exactly!!

I think it must've been soo hard because I didnt give myself much time to warm up (so nervous about having enough time to finish and get out on the road). But it all worked out and now I can't wait for them to bring out that turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

I did my 10k Turkey Trot this morning in 1:07. Well, that's my official time, my real time was around 1:05, but they only had a timing mat at the finish, not the start, so starting at the back of the pack (about 500 people I think) hurt my time a little.

I'm actually super proud of myself for starting out slow and sticking with my plan to run 5 minutes, walk 1 minute until the last mile which I ran the whole way in. I my last two miles were my fastest miles, which was awesome. I really kept the mantra "run your own race" in my head, not trying to worry about being in front of or behind anyone else. It was great and I felt really strong at the finish, like I could have kept going. Yay!!!

And I celebrated with a perfect meal and two kinds of pie (peanut butter and apple!).

It was my first run with my Garmin Forerunner 10 and I LOVED it! It has a great run/walk interval timer and the distance matched the mile markers perfectly even though a lot of the race was through trails in the woods.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!!

I'm visiting the parentals today and was planning to run this morning. As I was getting ready to head out I realized that I forgot to pack my running pants. So what's a Princess to do? Run in her pajama pants of course! Lol

Can't be any more odd than running in a tutu and tiara, right?

I finished my 5K in exactly 36 minutes, which was a pr for me. Man, I run slowly!

I compared the distance my phone calculated vs the markers and it was about .15 off for the total. Not bad, considering it was super crowded, so I was zigging and zagging and often required to take the outside lane around the many right-angle turns in the course.

But the difference made me wonder how off my training has been. SO, I went home and bit the bullet and ordered my Forerunner 10! I don't need anything too fancy. Anyone else use the Forerunner 10? Any tips or advice?

This is a general race etiquette question, as I have only run a couple of races. Is it not standard practice for walkers (not run/walkers) to start at the back of the pack, so to speak? Several times at the very beginning of the race today I was faced with a wall of walkers that I had to try to navigate around. And I mean in the first .10 of a mile.

I thought I had read somewhere that it was polite (and safer) to line up according to speed. So I started near the middle of the pack. Is that how it's done in the well run races (I don't think mine was particularly well run)? If it's assumed to be a free-for-all, then I'm going to need to get ahead of the walkers! As it was it took 3 minutes to reach the starting line after the race officially "started."
