Picking a Race

I mentioned last week that I was trying to decide which race to do next. It was between a Local 5-Miler and a Thanksgiving 5K.

Well, the 5-Miler is on Sunday, and I still haven't been working out (eek!), so that's a no-go.

But the 5K is in 6 weeks. That's the perfect amount of time to get my butt in gear and strive for a PR. I haven't done a 5K since April of 2009, and I have definitely gotten faster since then... so a PR is not at all out of the question.

So I'll be running the Chester County Turkey Trot 5K.

It takes place at 8am on Thanksgiving Day in Downingtown, Pennsylvania and the cost is a reasonable $20. Why Pennyslvania? Ryan and I will be there spending the holiday with his family. I think his dad is even considering running the race too (which is good, because I don't want to be the only weirdo out there on Thanksgiving Day running in the cold)!

It looks like a trip to the Y is in order.

Just found your blog this morning. Good luck in your upcoming 5k! I'll be checking back to see how it goes :)

I will be doing the one in Naperville at the same time. I think you can plan on a lot of "weidos". Nperville's race will have 8,000 of them. And yes, 6 weeks is more than enough time.

Yay! Thanksgiving Day runs are so fun! We did one last year and a ton of people showed up. And the Naperville one is really popular, like your dad said.

Have fun! :)
