Going To Get My Turkey Trot On

It’s Thanksgiving Week and the official start of the holiday season!  Part of me can’t believe that it’s here and that over half of November is already over.   I think Hurricane Sandy and the power outage that followed sort of messed with our November heads.    But this week means eating, running and family time and I’m excited for it.

Mr. L and I have a regular day today full of story time, gym time and ordering his Baptism party cake.  Tomorrow is Mr. L’s 7th month birthday and Wednesday we’ll be busy baking up a storm.  Then it’s Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving means Turkey Trot!

This year, like the past 2, I will be running the Ashenfelter 8k in Glen Ridge, NJ.

In 2010, I ran the 8k in 41:54 and last year, I pregnant wogged it in 1:01:04.  I am hoping to get somewhere in the middle of those two times but hopefully closer to the 41:54.  I was going to take Mr. L with me because the race is stroller friendly but it’s been a bit chilly in the mornings.  A bit too chilly for Mr. L to be in the stroller.

On Saturday I will be running the Westfield Turkey Trot 5 Mile in Westfield, NJ.  I ran this race back in 2008 with a time 42:40.

This race is also stroller friendly and with a start of 11:15am it is a perfect race to run with Mr. L.

In between running, eating and baking, I’ll probably get in a little Black Friday shopping and visiting with family.

What are your plans for this holiday week?  Running a Turkey Trot?

    Ashenfelter is a great way to start off the day.This will be my fourth year and my girls will be running the mile together for the first time.

  2. Ooh, so jealous of your Turkey Trots! I hope you have some great races and really enjoy them. You deserve it! We were going to do a T-Day 10K but didn’t feel like shelling out for two registration fees plus trekking to downtown Cincinnati. Boo!
