Turkey Trot

I want to start a thread for all you fitness types to log your Turkey Trot race and results (if you are comfortable doing so). I'll be running the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving (actually 3). It's a challenge and I'll be running the following:
1) 5K
2) One-Mile
3) 10K

They are staggered and I'll probably be staggering when I am done.

^ Yeah that's a lotta running.

I'm planning on doing a 10k. Ours is called the Berby Derby.

Anything cool at the end? I didn't google Berby Derby but some races give out pies or pancakes. You in Wisconsin? Will it be super cold. BTW I am wearing an old Green Bay replica jersey right now.

That will be fun. 8K is around 5 miles? Sounds like a good early race, nice distance, and you'll be back in time for football and lots of pie!

eumenides: I've been cycling a lot and trying to get my running legs back. A friend's daughter is doing the challenge, but just about my entire family is sticking to the Fun Run. I will do the wingding if my 16 year old nephew makes it down this year. He is in football and wrestling and run 5K's. So, I'll do my best to run the entire 5K with him.

Good luck! And more importantly - have fun! Anyway, if I do the WingDing I'll post my time, but if I only do the FunRun 5K, I'll keep the embarrassing time to myself :- )

I am currently getting myself ready for the Gasparilla 5K, but more importantly a 10 miler in DC in May (Orange Blossom 10 Miler).

Eumenides - They don't do anything like a pie at the end of the Berbee Derbee.

It has been 40 - 50 degrees here lately which is warm for Wisconsin right now. Supposed to be 50ish on Thanksgiving...really warm. Last year it was 30ish and damp, which is cold, but actually not too bad relatively speaking.

Yes, in Wisconsin. Yay to the Packer jersey...awesome!

Sounds like a good time, I've never run this (or any) Turkey Trot before. I'll be running the Gasparilla Half this coming year. Hoping to use that as a springboard into serious Marathon training!

I hope so - the weather is supposed to be beautiful. And you are correct - it is early enough to watch massive amounts of football, cook the turducken, mash the potatoes, and even take a nap (after eating the pie).

Final Result:
5k @ 28:00
1 Mile = 7:15
10K = 51:00

I used the 5k to warm up for the mile and 10K. I was able to hit my target pace of 8:30 for the 10K. Now, BRING ON THE PIE!

^ Nice runnin!

I did a 10k with sub nine minute miles. I don't normally run this far as normally I do shorter runs. So I was satisfied with the results.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.

54 minutes and change for my 8K -- slow but steady. I had a great time, however -- it was a beautiful day. My goal was to keep pace with the man running in khaki pants (an odd apparel choice), the two people dressed up like pilgrims who were doing a kinda Jeff Galloway thing, and the man in a nice looking turkey costume. Two out of three were successful (the dude in the khakis kicked my butt). Already signed up for the St Paddy's Day, considering the Jingle Bell run....need to improve my times.
