Turkey Trot Weekend

I ran not one but two turkey trots this past holiday weekend.  On Thanksgiving Day, I ran the Ashenfelter 8k Classic for the 3rd year in a row.    Since it was a bit too chilly out for Mr. L to hang in the stroller, I headed to Glen Ridge, NJ two hours before the race.  My plan was to run 5 miles before the 8k in order to get my long run done for the week.

I ran the 1st 5 miles at around 10 minute mile pace and even got to watch the kids 1 mile run.  It was such a beautiful day and they looked like they were having so much fun!

The gun went off for the Ashenfelter 8k right at 9am and I was off.  I ended up running the race in 47:18 with pretty even mile splits.  After crossing the finish line, I grabbed a bottle of water and headed home.  It was such a beautiful day out that I took Mr. L on a 2 mile walk for some fresh air.  10 miles of running + 2 miles of walking = lots of turkey eating for me.

A very bad and sweaty self-portrait..ick!

With one successful turkey trot of 2012 under my belt, I was excited to run the Westfield Turkey Trot 5 Mile on Saturday.  I decided to take Mr. L and he wore his new snowsuit.  This turkey trot started at 11:15am and Mr. L and I hung in the back with the strollers.   The 1st mile was really crowded and we completed it in 10:48.  Mile 2 – Mile 4 were on the roads of Westfield and a little less crowded.  Mr. L had a complete meltdown at mile 3.5 so I had to start booking it to finish.  We crossed the finish line in 51:26 for a minute mile pace of 10:17.   After crossing the finish line, I immediately turned the stroller around and ran straight to the car.  Mr. L was a much happier camper after getting home and playing with his toys.   Below is my tweet from after Saturday’s race.

2nd #turkeytrot of 2012 done! 5 miles+stroller+head wind+screaming baby=HARD #mamaneedsadrink

Yikes, it was a hard one! :)

My goal for the month was to do a 5 mile race with the stroller and I completed that.  Since Mr. L is now mobile, his BOB threshold is starting to decreased.  I’m thinking 5ks are the only stroller races he will tolerate now. :(

Did you race a turkey trot this weekend?  How did it go?
