Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 5K

Every year we have this local 5k Turkey Trot. I usually don't run this because I always say the way I eat I need to run more than a 5k. Plus this race is usually just a fun run and it's just for bragging rights if you beat the turkey. 

Fall Favorites

This fall has actually been going well for me.  I've been lucky enough to have the retrievers to keep me busy and we had fun picking out pumpkins, going to fall festivals, and just  hanging out!  The first half  of the season I was training for the Hershey Half Marathon and since then till now I've been  enjoying other things. 

Disney's Sea Side Sprint at the Boardwalk

The last week in October, my mom and I were in Disney for the Food and Wine Festival. While we were there, we decided to run another Disney fun run. This time it was the SeaSide Sprint at the Boardwalk. We originally were not planning on running this race, but we brought costumes for Mickey's not so scary Halloween party, so we thought we might as well  dress up and run a race! 

We had to Uber there in the morning.  Not sure how long that would take so we arrived in plenty of time.

New York City Marathon

I will try not to make this super long but there is so much to say about this iconic race. If you don't want to read what happened prior to the race, feel free to skip down to Race Morning.

When I first found out I got into the marathon, I was excited but already stressed about the logistics of it. Huge city, expensive, how to get around, etc.

Runners World 10k Race

After running  the Chicago Marathon, my plan was to just take it easy for the next week. 

However,  the next day I got an email for volunteers wanted at the Honey Stingers booth for the Runner's World Festival. It was on my day off so I thought why not? I responded with a yes, but quickly got an email back that said they did not need my help anymore. I looked up the events and saw they were putting on a 5k and 10k that Saturday morning. The 10k was later in the morning so I decided to sign up for that.
