The YMCA Turkey Trot was my first attempt at a 5K with only about 45 days of training. I was so excited to be a part of a "timed" 5K!

It was terribly cold that morning. I was freezing before the race started! I came in dead last — so far dead last that they had taken down the timer and everything. I finished the race in 59 minutes, according to my Garmin. Since that race, I have committed to get in better shape by joining a gym and outdoor "running" — weather permitting! I did a 5K in Omaha recently in 45 minutes!

All that being said: I will be participating in the YMCA Turkey Trot this year! By the way, I am 63 and slightly overweight — but I RUN! Come dressed as a turkey and support the YMCA!
