Turkey Trot 5k Recap


I’m pretty sure I’m running on coffee this week, but the end is so near I can taste it. School has been overwhelming (to say the least) and every day seems to be a due date. I’m surviving, but I wouldn’t say I’m thriving. I desperately need Christmas break to rest my brain and not think about school for a few weeks. (and bake Christmas cookies, and watch Christmas movies, and stay in my PJs all day….)

Remember when I told you I signed up for a turkey trot 5k to run on Thanksgiving? I figured I would update you on how that went!

I signed up mostly just for some motivation and to add some fun to my running routine, and it did the job(s) really well! Sometimes a good group run is just the thing you need to mix up a rather solo running routine


I didn’t wear a watch so was pretty unaware of how far I had gone already and how far I had to go, and I think that sometimes that’s the best way to do it. It can be refreshing to run unattached to any kind of screen. (Obviously if you want to run a certain time you should probably wear a watch, but I just was jogging for fun.)

The weather turned out to be pretty nice and I was comfortable in a light pullover and crops. I love when I dress perfectly for the weather! That can sometimes be hard to judge.

Jake decided to run in it too, and won the whole race. He won a medal and a pumpkin pie! Isn’t that fun? (I did NOT win, in case you were wondering. 😉 )

Overall, it was a fun time, and I’m excited to run another 5k in December! I am signing up for a Jingle Bell Run, and fun festive outfits are involved. Stay tuned for pics of me dressed up while running! (I know you just can’t wait)

I hope you’re having a good week! Is the end of the semester killing you too, or is it just me?
