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.
Mile 1: 9:58
Mile 2: 10:16
Mile 3: 11:37
.13 at 10:43
Total time: 33:18:44
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!
And the money maker – after the awards ceremony, they raffled off turkeys and pumpkin pie! And guess who won one?
