Race Report: 2013 Turkey Rock Trot 5K

Seven!

We’ve been running the Turkey Trot in Castle Rock as a family since 2007.  It has been a great tradition for us.  I can’t believe how seven years has flown by in so many ways.

So thankful to be a Dad to such great kids.

I put a good effort into my race, but just couldn’t turn the legs over as fast as I would have liked.  Probably has something to do with the 24 miler I ran on Monday, or the 20 miles on Tuesday, or 22 yesterday.  At the very least I wanted to get a sub-7 average and managed that with a 6:58, but my heart rate only averaged 165.  Sure sign of tired legs.

It was a great way to start the day.
