Race: Pelican Lakes Turkey Trot (3.11 Miles) 00:17:32

Drove up north today to run a turkey trot I found online. Ran around a golf course trail which was pretty cool actually - course was pretty flat, lots of little undulations but nothing higher than like 10 feet. Just short quick ups and downs, weather was perfect - nearing 50 at the start - for a turkey trot that's pretty remarkable. Ended up running 17:32 but had to stop my watch at the 5k because the course was about .1-.2 long, which added about 30-40 seconds to the overall time, which I'm not sure even what they had me at and/or if it was accurate - they had some timing problems. My watch had me at 17:32 for 3.11 so I'll go with that. My splits were pretty good - 5:34, 5:41, 5:39 and :37 for the .11. Felt pretty good and nice to have a little speed left. This was at 4700 feet so a little lower than Thornton (5300 ft) but still elevation. Regardless at sea level (or in Iowa) I would probably be nearing sub-17 as I was this summer. Got a long c/d in of 4.8 miles and enjoyed the nice weather and the scenic town of Windsor, CO. Overall, fun race and course (even though a little long - I'll never learn to stop registering for these small local races just because they are cheaper). They also screwed up the awards somehow, I finished 3rd, but they had me at 4th because apparently someone in the wave behind me was sposed to be in my wave? The race seemed a little small to have wave starts and they said gun time was the award time, but didn't follow that through. Might have won some cash for 3rd place, but probably not a ton. Either way, I didn't say anything and wasn't too upset - it's a 5k on Thanksgiving, I'm just happy and thankful to be healthy and able to go run today because there are a lot who cannot. May try to hang on for one more 10k this fall before taking a break before my 2nd Boston cycle.

almost identical to last year if I stop my training cycle here - last year I ran a decent run on the day after thanksgiving too and took a break - this year I wanted to get a race or two more in but two factors are telling me to take a break - 1. lack of race options and 2. probably more importantly, this abdomen pull or pain or whatever it is thats been bothering me for the better part of a year now off and on, probably need some extra rest to let that heal before I start training for Boston
