The Uptown Turkey Trot was a huge success! I hate not running though... :o)
When I got there to check in, I was told I was going to be at mile 4 instead of mile 3. What was cool was we got to ride in one of the lead vehicles at the gun and be dropped off at our respective miles. Riding on the back of a tailgate ahead of the runners is cool.
However, 37 minutes into the 10K, my dang stopwatch, stopped. Boo!! Oh well, at least the lead runners all got their times called out. And people...its GUN time that I am calling out, not your INDIVIDUAL time ;o), so don't go postal on me...One girl actually wanted to argue with me. Sigh.
The winner was so far ahead of everyone else, it was incredible. If I remember right he passed me at mile 4 at about 20 minutes. Figeroa was his name-o...
I loved being out there because I got to see so many people I havent seen in a while, plus all the Lukes customers were shouting and waving and saying hi!
Congrats to EVERYONE that ran such a good race in not so perfect conditions this morning!! Now its off for Thanksgiving food and probably a movie or something this evening...
