Run #11

"If you want to become the best runner you can be, start now. Dont spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it" - Priscilla Welch

Run# 11
Date: 11-30-09

Monday after Thanksgiving = boring day at work and my usual Monday night spin class. Unfortunately had a horrible migraine and came home and luckily had some motrin to take. The worst part of a migraine is the waiting for it to go away (i rarely get them but i just want to lay down eyes closed but the pounding seems to be worse with the eyes closed) - anyways after feeling better and instead of wasting my night on the couch it was decided i needed to run.

It was later than normal but who cares why not - got change, grabbed the Garmin and outside we went to the lake. Weather was nice - I wished it wasnt dark so early but cant change that.
Ran my square around the lake and then decided lets go do 1ce around the lake and i finished and was so happy!

Run #10

"Thanksgiving after all, is a word of action"- W.J. Cameron

Date: 11-26-09 (Thanksgiving Day)

The action on Thanksgiving morning started at 8am in Downtown Orlando for the 20th Annual Seniors First Turkey Trot. Weather was perfect (wore shorts and a long sleeved shirt) and there were rumored to be 4200 people signed up for this race.

My best friend Jourdan and her dad and brother, as well as our friend Mark all ran the 5K race. Brett came to watch Jourdan & I and cheer us on at the finish line. Last year was the first time we ran the race (without really training) so we decided to do it again this year. Though you dont get to sleep in on Thanksgiving morning, you get such a great feeling after you finish.
