5-mile Turkey Run

Wow....you might say this is the first race I raced!! I have been just trying to finish smoothly, with no injuries, but my girlfriend, Anne, who has run 13 Marathons said, "Enough is enough! This is your year!" So she ran beside me and with a zero degree wind chill, hills and wind in our faces, she encouraged me thruout the 5 miles....and, oh man, before I knew it, I crossed the finish line at 52:04!!! No walking, no stopping for water...just good old-fashioned racing!! Life is good.

So...I'm gonna dig in, try hard to lose these last 10-15 lbs....and kick butt this coming year!! GOLORAGO!!
