Happy New Year, and Happy New Running Races!
I took some time off for the holidays, but I didn’t neglect my running schedule. We also did another family 5K — this time, it was the Totally Running & Walking’s Tryptophan Run on Thanksgiving Day. We weren’t sure how it would feel to pack all that into the holiday, but I honestly feel like it helped us start the day off on the right foot (no pun intended!).
This race took place on the Greenway, but this time we didn’t have to deal with any surprise hills at the end. Temps were in the 30s when we arrived to the course, which was honestly perfect weather. The only downside is it had rained a bit the night before, so a couple of the bridges were slippery/icy.
I got in my best time per mile, so I’m happy that I keep improving with each race!
Looking ahead, we’ve got Star Wars in April, and I’m planning on doing a couple of virtual races here and there too. I’m not sure if I will do any other “official” races before the April 10K–I’m honestly not seeing any cool courses that I could easily access to at this time. With that being said, I’m hoping to branch out and see what other races are out there…I may even check out one in the Smoky Mountains later this summer!
