It’s one month to Thanksgiving, and i’m on a mission. A quest if you will… one that my sole sister has nicknamed #turkeyvisionquest.
In 30 days, i’m running in my town’s Turkey Trot. 🦃🦃🦃
And I don’t just want to run well…and I don’t just want to PR…I want to WIN. And by winning, I mean place in my age group.
I have an official 5K PR of 26:15. And I set it in 2009. 😮
What can I say – I wasn’t an ultra runner back then. Over the years I willingly sacrificed speed for distance. And I don’t regret it. 🙂
But now, as i’m in my distance off-season (for the next couple weeks) its time to fly.
In the past two weeks i’ve been hitting the treadmill and running intervals and tempos and anything I can to help get faster. And i’m getting there. But I still have a LOT of work to do. 🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️
I have shaved a minute off my 5k in those two weeks… but am still a ways from my goal…
Turkey Vision Quest is for a 25:00 5k. 😲
And even if i don’t get to show up back home in front of the inlaws with a shiny trophy… 🏆just hitting that time, i’ll feel like I won.🏅
Wish me luck friends!
Because just like Matthew Modine… I will succeed.
