Oy. I am not a morning person, yet I got up at 5:45 (!!) am this morning and headed out to Lake Balboa Park for the Lake Balboa 5k Turkey Trot.
Oy again. I'm just getting back into running again after years off, and haven't finished my Couch to 5k running program yet. Oh well....I finished with a new personal worst of 47:39. At least I wasn't last: I was just nearly
last, finishing ahead of a whopping 11 people.
I was either 174th or 175th -- I can't remember. At least I finished fairly strongly, with a pale imitation of my old finishing kick.
Oh well, nowhere to go but up, right?
I'm very glad I ran: thanks for suggesting this activity, Cappy. I had a great time. It was a cold, foggy morning here in L.A., and the line of runners ahead of me disappeared into the fog. Very atmospheric. Great fun.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
