Today was the annual family turkey trot that we run at Wilson Farm Park in Chesterbrook, PA.
Harmony had a half mile kids run (that’s quite long for little kids) and managed to run/walk the whole thing; no riding on my shoulders this year!
We were joined once again by my friend Ed.
Last year he was about 260 lbs and we ran it in 45:43.
This year he’s about 180 lbs and we ran it in about… 28:35. What an achievement! We were hoping to break the 30 minute mark and this smashed it. We were helped by us basically ignoring the intervals and running the first two miles with no walking breaks.
Here he is recovering at the end. And over his shoulder, I think, is one of my blogging friends Annie from thelittlegsp.com . I only noticed her once I’d taken the shot and she walked off in the other direction.
Was that you, Annie? It was off the main trail to the right-hand side past the finish line… I shouted out to you but you were walking off the other way.
Anyway, we all had a good time and went off for a diner second breakfast afterwards.
This tapering lark feels rather lazy but I’m enjoying it so far.
Happy Thanksgiving, blogosphere.
