2009 Turkey Trot – 4 Mile – 29:54

14 Comments

Today’s race was a Turkey Trot 4 Mile race that is very hilly and finishes up with .75 on the grass. We had perfect race weather, 58 degrees, sunny and no wind.

The elevation chart from my Garmin.

 

Got a picture of the part of the course after the race. It is a beautiful park with a lot of off road trails too.

Rob and I both PRed! He came in 29:43 and I was 29:54. We both improved this distance by two minutes which we were both happy with since this course was not flat at all.

I also got 1st in my age group! The awards are turkey trophys and 1st and 2nd got a voucher from Kroger grocrey store for a free Jenny-O turkey.

Me with my sweet trophy and winnings.

Close up of the trophy.

Stats:
29:54
7:29 pace
F 30-34: 1/9
F: 8/53
Overall: 44/135
