This Thanksgiving I started the day the same way I did last year, joining thousands of other runners in the Webster Turkey Trot.
It was warmer than last year. But, let’s face it — 35°F is still cold. And there was no heated tent to wait in beforehand this year.
Once the race started, though, I didn’t feel the cold at all. By the end of the race I had removed my hat,
mittens socks, and neck warmer. My neck warmer was offered as a sacrifice to the running gods, as it slipped out of my pocket at some point.
I finished with a chip time of 32:52 in the Four-Four, which put me at:
- 285 of 3435 overall
- 14 of 144 in Male 40 to 44 age group
That is 1:20 faster than last year!
