Ellie and I ran the Longmont Turkey Trot this morning. The holidays seem to come earlier every year. Ellie ran the two mile in a 9:04 pace. Pretty fast. I didn’t catch my time for the 10K but I ran the entire distance alongside Keith. We started out easy the first two miles, then surged in the third mile and kept a strong pace to the end. I’d guess we ran under 45 minutes. Keith put on a strong kick the final half mile to finish ahead of me by a good ten seconds.
I should add that Ellie took 2nd in her under 20 age group in last weekend’s 5K. We didn’t wait around afterward to know that. I took 2nd as well, losing to Keith once again. This turkey trot is always a highly competitive race. I typically finish top 3 but doubt I did today. Results will be posted soon. More painting to do now in the carriage house and football to watch. Enjoy your fall weekend.
