NBK Turkey Trot 5k

CIMG9326

Today, Jodus and I joined some friends for the Naval Base Kitsap Turkey Trot 5k. It was a semi-impromptu race to sign up for. I think we registered on Tuesday? But it was cheap, and close (15 minute drive) so why the heck not?

We had a few speed demons in the group, and a couple walkers and we were the happy medium. We went into the race trying not to think about time. We haven’t been doing a whole lot of running lately and Huz is still recovering from an injury.

We had no clue what the route was going into the race so that was kind of fun! I couldn’t overthink it or psyche myself out and that third mile that happened to have a nice steady uphill.

It turned out to be a gorgeous but chilly day and the route was so pretty! I can’t believe that Jodus doesn’t take advantage of running on base after work. I would be all over that!

After the last of our group came in, we headed inside and waited around through the awards ceremony.

Nicole got 3rd in the 18-29 division!

(Recognize the shirt? She ran Rhody too! And she was on our Ragnar team!)

And the money maker – after the awards ceremony, they raffled off turkeys and pumpkin pie! And guess who won one?

  1. What injury did he have?

    That looks like so much fun! And score on the turkey. I hope you hadn’t already bought one. LOL

  2. Yeaaa!! Congrats!! You look awesome Leah!

  3. Looks like a fun group to run with! Great winning the Thanksgiving bird!

  4. The shirts are cute! Winning a turkey? Worth a run. You two look adorable.

  5. Nice shirts! Winning a Turkey is awesome, are you making dinner this year? I’ve never made a Turkey, but I’m hoping to get one on sale after Thanksgiving so I can try it out.
    What program do you use to upload your run? I’ve never seen the elevation mapped out like that.

    • We aren’t hosting Thanksgiving this year but I will probably end up making a mini-turkey dinner for ourselves later in the weekend. Love all the leftovers!

      For mapping routes, I use mapmyrun.com. It’s my favorite because of the elevation mapping. Dailymile is similar but not quite as comprehensive.
