Personal:

Pride necessarily sprouts and grows; a pride that can only come from relentless kneading of unwilling flesh, painful months of grinding and burning away all that is heavy, all that is strength-sapping and useless to the body as a projectile. --John L. Parker, Jr., runner/author

Race: Stony Creek Turkey Trail Trot (6.1 Miles) 00:40:56, Place overall: 2, Place in age division: 1

On a crisp morning around 26 degrees with light snow falling, I ran the Turkey Trail Trot 10K at Stony Creek Metropark in Shelby, Michigan, a Detriot suburb about 11 Miles north of Troy, Michigan, where I am staying with Diana's parents for the holidays.

Great, well-organized race(s) on awesome trails, including quiet a bit of single track. Offerings include the 10K, a 4-Miler, and a 2.5 Mile hike.

Ran pretty well and thoroughly enjoyed myself, finishing 2nd overall in 40:56 (6:36/mile). 

Now, I'm very much looking forward to a fun and relaxing day with my family.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on FRB. 

Wesley
