The Return of the Turkey Trot (TROTTT) turned out to be a grand return indeed. I originally ran this race way back in 2001, my 2nd road race ever. A lot has changed in 10 years. The race is now chip timed, 4x more participants, and I’m faster. This year, I finish the 8k in 29:18 and finally broke under a 6:00/mile pace for any race distance. It was a fantastic feeling to run fast without fading. For my efforts, I won a pumpkin pie.
Note: I have now set a PR (personal record) in every race distance I can think of this year; 50 mile, 50k, marathon, half marathon, 15k, 10k, 8k, 5k, 1 mile. What a year!
