Turkey Trot 5k Recap

I did it! I ran a 5k! I finished in 33:14 which is a really great pace for me. I said my goal was just to not stop running but secretly I hoped to finish in under 35 minutes.... Mission accomplished!!
Pre-Race:
(My mom came with to cheer me on and took this picture... to which I replied "Mom, you can not take pictures in locker rooms!!") My workout buddy Emily!!

Mom and Brian both weren't even watching as I crossed the finish line because they thought it would take me way longer to run it!

I felt great during the run! Emily and I broke apart around the halfway point and then I made it my mission to just keep picking people off. I am competitive :)

Post run:

We did it!!

Emily and I both won turkeys in the raffle!

Here are all the pictures that I stole off the EverettFF Facebook!




I was the 4th female to finish! I think that there were about 10 females running so that is kinda neat!

I am totally hooked on running races now! It was so fun and I feel so accomplished!
