Turkey Trot – 4M – 29:15

2 Comments

Sunday we met up with Drew to run the Turkey Trot 4 Miler in Peoria, IL. Carrie surprised us and came out to cheer us on.

We had good weather it was in the 40s and light winds. This race is a fall time favorite of ours, even with the crazy hill climbing that begins .5 mile in. I know my hamstring recovery didn’t call for racing, let alone a super hilly course, but I couldn’t say no. My pain has reduced to a 3 on a scale of 1-10 so I just went out to see if I could hold together. I’m definitely not in race shape since I’ve been dealing with this. While it was a butt kick race, my heart was so happy to be out.

I was a minute off my time from last year on this course, but I will take it since I finished without making my injury worse. I ended up with 2nd in my Age Group and Rob got 3rd in his!

  1. Great job girl. And I am in love the photo of you and the tree trunk. A minute off really isn’t too much and you are keeping the injury at bay. πŸ™‚
