Turkey Trot Goal

I'm running the Chicago Turkey Day Run 5k tomorrow morning to celebrate Thanksgiving and my birthday. Initially, my goal was to PR at this race. I was sure that I could achieve this goal. Now, I'm not so sure.

The last couple of weeks have been good, but not great. Sure, I've been running regularly, but I've also been struggling with both pace and distance. At the beginning of the month, a PR tomorrow seemed easy. As of today, well...I just don't know.

After a lot of thought, I've decided to set a new, simpler goal: Run the whole race. I've been taking too many walk breaks during my regular runs. Tomorrow morning, I want to run the whole time. It is only a 5k, so this should be doable.

Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck with that goal! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I hope you had a fun race and were able to run it all!
