On a whim, I signed up for the Running of the Turkeys 10k after asking my running buddy Miranda if she would want to do it as well. Her first marathon is next weekend so I knew she was already tapering. And its been such a long while since we have ran a race together. It was so much fun having her there and cheering me at the finish. I have been building up my mileage again but the furthest I have been is 4.5 miles. Until last weekend when I did my first 5 miler and I did pretty good with it. As soon as I signed up, I felt like puking. The night before and day of the race I wasn't any better. But as soon as the race started that all went away.

This is my "I'm trying not to puke face."
I also made this race for the Chase for Chaz as well. I was the race director for it so I didn't get to run with everyone else on that day. But I did register to do the virtual race at a later time. I just didn't think it would be 6 months later to the date. I guess its better late than never.

It feels so good being back better than I was before. Sometimes, I am kinda thankful for the injury. It has helped me push to be where I am now. Where I wanted to be before I stepped off the carport trying to kill myself. ;) I can not wait to see what next year holds. Bring it!
Run Happy!! :)
