It's official. I just picked up my bib from Luke's Locker. I'm really excited about running this race. This is one of the races that I always happen to miss for some reason or other. Well there are no excuses now. I also have been warned. Several people have told me that it is a very packed raced so I need to get there early. Now I'm not looking to run a blazing(blazing can be a relative term) time or anything because it just isn't going to happen. I've been putting in too many miles training for the marathon for that too happen. So this will be my workout for the week, which will be good because I haven't done a workout in probably a month. We'll see how it goes.
In addition the TXU Turkey trot there are at least 3 other races in the Houston area.
- Sugarland Turkey Trot 5 miler - I don't know anything about this race, but Sugarland races are generally well organized.
- GE Run Thru the Woods - I hear the REALLY fast guys will be running in this race. Plenty of runners and a nice scenic route.
- Katy YMCA Turkey Dash 5k and Kid's 1 Mile - I ran this race last year and I had a pretty good time. If I recall, it was a pretty fast course.
So it looks to be a pretty busy Thanksgiving day for runners with plenty of choices to choose from. To all my running buddies, I'll see you there(...and good luck). If I don't know you, come chat me up(I love to talk about running).
